Internet Archive Receives Sloan Foundation Grant

The Internet Archive's efforts to digitize content and make it freely accessible online have received a tremendous boost from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation (www.sloan.org). The foundation is awarding the Internet Archive a grant to bring historical collections from eminent cultural institutions online without any restrictions on their uses. In addition, the Internet Archive, through its work supporting Open Content Alliance (OCA) principles of free and open access to knowledge, said that it has reached a milestone of 100,000 digitized books now publicly available at www.archive.org.

With the new funding, several historical and influential collections will be added to the open library, including the following:

• The Boston Public Library: The John Adams collection, which is the complete personal library of the second president of the U.S.

• The Getty Research Institute: Major collection of books on art and architecture and an alternate collection on the performing arts

• The Metropolitan Museum of Art: The archive of publications issued by the Metropolitan Museum through the present

• The Bancroft Library of the University of California-Berkeley: Key primary texts documenting the California Gold Rush and western expansion

• The Johns Hopkins University Libraries: The James Birney Collection of Anti-Slavery materials
