AP piece on the Physical Archive of the Internet Archive

The AP wrote a article and made a video about the physical archive of the Internet Archive.   This is our storage system for millions of books that I wrote about on the Archive Blog.   We hope to expand it to music and movies as well.

    What a novel idea! (sorry)
    How can I send a book that I wrote to your physical archive? [This probably will become a FAQ.]

      You can send the book to Internet Archive, 300 Funston Ave, San Francisco, CA 94118.

      Thanks for helping to build a library!

    I heard about your idea to collect a copy of books ever published and this article came to mind: http://www.upi.com/Odd_News/2011/06/07/Weight-of-book-collection-damaging-house/UPI-24131307448095/

    I hope it can be of use.

  3. Dear Mr. Kahle,

    I am the author of the nonfiction book:
    Letters from Frank: An American Terrorist’s Life and I would like to donate a physical copy for your project that I consider very important.
    I want to spread the word of my written legacy for every generation and this is a great way to share my knowledge with more people.
    I will also be glad to donate an electronic version of my work, so please let me know details where to send it to make my contribution for the readers.

    I saw the article about this in March 4 2012 Sunday’s NYTimes and I found your blog. I am editor of The Philatelic Communicator and, of course, discussion has been intense about how to publish and what to keep. This topic fits well. May I use your blog and photos in our next issue? Thanks.
