The Internet Archive is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that was founded to build an Internet library. Its purpose includes offering permanent access to historical collections that exist in digital format to researchers, historians, scholars, people with disabilities, and to the general public. Founded in 1996 and located in San Francisco, the Archive has been receiving data donations from Alexa Internet and others. In late 1999, the organization started to grow to include more wellrounded collections. Now the Internet Archive includes texts, audio, moving images, and software as well as archived web pages in our collections, and provides specialized services for adaptive reading and information access for the blind and other persons with disabilities.
