Library of Congress Chooses Al-Hewar's
September 11 Page for
Its Digital Archive Collection
The Library of Congress's mission is to make its resources available and useful to the Congress and the American people and to sustain and preserve a universal collection of knowledge and creativity for future generations. If the Library of Congress is to continue to foster education and scholarship in this era of digital technology, it must extend to the digital world its traditional functions of acquiring, cataloging, preserving and serving collection materials of historical importance. As digital information on the Internet has a short life span, we are pursuing a project to collect digital material relating to the September 11, 2001 attack on the United States, its aftermath and the national and international response. Your site has been selected for inclusion in this project as we assess the scholarly value of born digital materials in creating digital collections. For more information on the mission and activities of the Library of Congress, see the Library of Congress web site at http://www.loc.gov.
The Internet Archive <http://www.archive.org> and WebArchivist.org <http://www.webarchivist.org> will assist the Library of Congress in collecting, storing and serving relevant born digital material from the Internet...
We thank you in advance for your cooperation:
