  • The Internet Archive's goal is to make and preserve one copy of every published work it is able to attract or acquire - books, movies, records, everything.

  • The Archive's Scribe scanning system is available as a service, and is non-destrtuctive. The software that powers it is available on SourceForge. FYI, the Scribe software hasn't been updated in a while and was engineered specifically for the custom hardware IA uses in their scanning room.

  • Fun fact: the Internet Archive is known for archiving copies of the world's websites with its Wayback Machine. But did you know it is a bigger source of public domain e-books than Google? It has over one million torrents, too.
