Ilya Kremer’s machine-readable list of archives

Webrecorder creator, LIL fellow and Rhizome collaborator Ilya Kremer has recently created a machine-readable list of public archiving services on GitHub:  https://github.com/webrecorder/public-web-archives.

The purpose of this is to “highlight, and help promote the sizable (and growing list!) of publicly accessible web archives all over the world, in a distributed and democratic way,’ as well as “to encourage interoperability and interconnectedness between different web archives.” In other words, both let people know about the range of archives and archiving services out there, and to encourage partnership between the archiving services (such as is found in the Memento framework).

Thanks Ilya! Be sure to check out his Perma-included list on GitHub!

Perma in the News: D-Lib Magazine

The May/June 2017 issue of D-Lib Magazine features an article by Library Innovation Lab Director Kim Dulin on the Lab’s IMLS National Digital Platform grant to further develop the Perma.cc service and what we have accomplished in the first year!  The grant will allow Perma.cc to grow our user base outside the legal community and expand the impact Perma.cc can have on ending link rot.  With this grant, Perma.cc is expanding our outreach to academic institutions and communities beyond the legal sphere, as well as building a framework for private and commercial usage to maintain a free service for public and academic users.
