Library of Congress

«Twitter has also grown exponentially in the years since the library started its collection. That year, 2010, about half a billion tweets were posted every two weeks. In November, that many were sent each day. The messages are now longer: The company recently doubled its limit for tweets to 280 from 140 characters. Such complications have plagued public access to the archive, too, which is limited while the library works to find a cost-effective and sustainable way to open the archive to the public».

« Pour Internet Archive, la question d’un changement complet de philosophie se pose. L’archivage du web ne doit plus se faire en tenant compte des déclarations des fichiers robots.txt qui s’adressent avant tout aux moteurs de recherche. Il doit se faire en prenant en compte le point de vue de l’utilisateur, de façon à lui montrer le web tel qu’il est aujourd’hui. Et tel qu’il était autrefois ».

« Le pire ennemi de l’homme ou de la femme politique est lui-même, son ancien moi, celui qui disait autre chose, qui le disait différemment. En relevant ces contradictions, on pense révéler une vérité de la politique : ah regardez, il se renie, trahit et se parjure… Ok. Mais rappelons-nous la belle phrase d’Edgar Faure qui disait : ‘Ce n’est pas la girouette qui tourne, c’est le vent.' »

Alarmed that decades of crucial climate measurements could vanish under a hostile Trump administration, scientists have begun a feverish attempt to copy reams of government data onto independent servers in hopes of safeguarding it from any political interference.

The history of libraries is one of loss. The Library of Alexandria is best known for its disappearance. Libraries like ours are susceptible to different fault lines: Earthquakes, Legal regimes, Institutional failure. So this year, we have set a new goal: to create a copy of Internet Archive’s digital collections in another country. We are building the Internet Archive of Canada because, to quote our friends at LOCKSS, “lots of copies keep stuff safe.”

Toute analogie entre l’élection de Trump et les tremblements de terre ne serait que pure fiction…

Photographers’ Identities Catalog (PIC) is an experimental interface to a collection of biographical data describing photographers, studios, manufacturers, and others involved in the production of photographic images. Consisting of names, nationalities, dates, locations and more, PIC is a vast and growing resource for the historian, student, genealogist, or any lover of photography’s history. The information has been culled from trusted biographical dictionaries, catalogs and databases, and from extensive original research by NYPL Photography Collection staff.
