This week, archive.org released a beta version of our new upload tool, created to ease sharing of your material on Internet Archive. We’ll be moving away from FTP uploads in favor of HTTP uploading which allows you to upload right on the web. When you click on the “Upload” button, you’ll be prompted to use the HTTP method, if you choose.
To use the new beta uploader:

We encourage you to give it a shot and offer any feedback you have on the new system. Here is a conversation that is currently taking place about the switch.
Additionally, we have a new edit tool for your items on the Archive. You can use this tool to change an item’s title, description, file formats and titles, running time, language, etc. You can also use it to remove, add, or rename files within an item.
To edit your item:
Note: If you would like us to make derivative files, click on “Item Manager” after you click on “Edit Item” and click the “Derive” button. This will make smaller, more compressed versions of your upload.
As always, we greatly appreciate all of your generous contributions to the Archive, and we hope this new process will make this open sharing even easier.
