September 11th Digital Archive

The Open Content Alliance ( is a collaborative effort of organizations worldwide seeking to build “a digital archive of global content for universal access.” The OCA is obtaining publisher permission for content digitization and web-distribution and is therefore able to provide full-text versions of text and media artifacts in its growing archive.

The Internet Archive ( is another organization digitizing vast quantities of resources, but invites contributions from researchers, historians, scholars and the general public. The Internet Archive provides free hosting for audio and video files, and free tools are available for uploading and opening licensing content (ccPublisher).
