Link of the Week – Internet Archive

Here’s a nifty site. Internet Archive. I had first heard about this site when a friend’s website disappeared for no discernible reason. But upon further poking around, this site offers so much more. It is essentially an internet library for free books, movies, software, music, images, and more. Cool! I love libraries!

First, my initial reason for checking out the website: reviving dead links

“[…]offer access to archived versions of Web pages when those pages have been removed from the Web. This means that if you get a “404 – Page Not Found” error, you’ll still be able to find a version of the page.”

It’s the Wayback Machine! Plug in the broken link and retrieve earlier versions of that webpage.

More about the site.

The Internet Archive is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that was founded to build an Internet library. Its purposes include offering permanent access for researchers, historians, scholars, people with disabilities, and the general public to historical collections that exist in digital format.

Go. Research. Retrieve.
