Sept. 11 Archive



http://september11.archive.org/

Our aim in creating this collection of Web materials is to preserve the Web expressions of individual people, groups, the press and institutions from around the world, in the aftermath of the attacks in the U.S. on September 11, 2001. We hope the archive provides resources for many kinds of reflection on the meanings of these events.

Since the hours just after the attacks, we have been collecting Web materials that reflect responses to them, from as many sources as possible. People from around the world have contributed URLs to be included in this collection, and we are grateful for each submission.

The September 11 Web Archive is a collaboration between the Library of Congress, the Internet Archive and webArchivist.org. The Library of Congress (http://www.loc.gov) commissioned this archive and organized its collection and development. The Internet Archive (http://www.archive.org) archives the web sites included in this collection, and hosts the collected materials. WebArchivist.org (http://www.webarchivist.org) developed the http://september11.archive.org web site, identifies web materials to be preserved in the collection, and generates data about the web sites in the archive.
