The Internet Archive is building a library of Internet sites and other cultural artifacts in digital form. The resources included in the archive are divided into four categories: Moving Images, Live Music Archive, Audio, and Texts.
The Moving Image Archive contains thousands of digital movies which range from classic full-length films, to daily alternative news broadcasts. Many of these movies are available for download. It also contains The Prelinger Archives, a collection of over 2000 ‘ephemeral’ films.
The audio archive contains over a hundred thousand free digital recordings ranging from alternative news programming, to Old Time Radio shows, to book and poetry readings. Many of these audio files and MP3s are available for free download.
The open access text archive contains a wide range of collections, including Project Gutenberg, a community project established in 1971 to make plain text versions of books available freely to all.
