The Internet Archive (http://www.archive.org/) has huge collections of media and cultural artifacts available for access and use by “researchers, historians, scholars, and the general public” and of course web designers, bloggers, and media designers. Justin Lewis briefly discussed and recommended the Internet Archive in in Screen Space 15: An interview with Justin Lewis on “Copyleft, Digital Pirates, and Content Creation with Remixing. The Internet Archive materials are copylefted, creative commons attributed, or are no longer under copyright. The collection includes some music and media from the early 20th century, recordings of live music, over 2 million books, classic full-length films, and a large variety of open access materials. In addition, there is an archive of the web, so you can see what a site looked like 10 years ago. Check this out for a cool song to add to your podcast or a book to download for your trip to the beach. Also, consider adding your own media to the library!
