We Go Way Back: Libraries & Community Web Archiving

The Internet Archive, creator of the Wayback Machine, awarded New Brunswick Free Public Library and 27 libraries across the country a grant to begin digital archiving of websites that relate to local history, culture and social events. This updated version of creating vertical file collections comes with challenges like learning a new technical language, but overall it will expand collections for patrons around the world to view and capture news as it is happening.
