Library of Congress Accepts September 11 Digital Archive

The Library of Congress will mark its first major digital acquisition of Sept. 11, 2001, materials with the addition to its collections of the September 11 Digital Archive (http://911digitalarchive.org). The September 11 Digital Archive is a joint project of the City University of New York Graduate Center's American Social History Project and George Mason University's Center for History and New Media—two institutions that have explored digital history for more than a decade. The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation provided the funding for the Digital Archive.


On Sept. 10, the Library of Congress will formally accept the material, which contains more than 130,000 written accounts, e-mails, audio recordings, video clips, photographs, Web sites, and other materials that document the attacks on New York City, Washington, D.C., and western Pennsylvania and their aftermath. The Library says the archive is the largest digital collection of September 11-related materials, serving as the Smithsonian Institution's designated repository for digital objects related to the attacks.

To mark the acquisition of the Archive, the Library of Congress will host a daylong symposium, "September 11 as History: Collecting Today for Tomorrow." The event, which begins at 9 a.m. in the Library's Coolidge Auditorium on Sept. 10, will feature commentary by leading U.S. historians, librarians, and archivists. The symposium is free and open to the public (register online at http://www.loc.gov/911Symposium).
