Thanks to the generous support of our users we raised $250,000 in donations during the month of December, and with the 3-to-1 match from one of our donors that gives us $1,000,000! We raised enough to purchase 4 petabytes of storage, which helps us towards the 10 we estimate for next year. Beyond that, this will help us archive books, music, video and web sites. If you haven’t donated yet, please help keep the archive open!
We brought an unprecedented amount of information into the archive in 2012:
- 50,000,000,000 web pages
- 1,000,000 hours of television
- 370,000 new audio/music items
- 100,000 new videos
We launched the TV News Search & Borrow service, which makes almost 400,000 television news programs searchable and borrowable. We made all of Balinese literature available online. And you can play with a new, beta Wayback that has a much more up to date index.
We look forward to archiving even more great material in 2013. Thank you for helping to support the goal of Universal Access to All Knowledge.
