Internet Archive: Universal Access. Open APIs - VM Brasseur, Internet Archive & Alexis Rossi, Internet Archive

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

With tens of millions of items in its collections, Internet Archive is one of the largest libraries in the world. It provides free and open access to all of its materials to anyone with an internet connection, making it a treasure trove for researchers, historians, and curious individuals.

Of course, having a collection that large doesn’t help anyone if it’s difficult to access. To help with this, Internet Archive has released a number of open APIs and tools to allow people to upload and download items, as well as data mine the metadata for the entire collection.

In this session we will:

* Give you a tour of Internet Archive and its collections
* Introduce you to the APIs and tools you can use to access and contribute to the Archive
* Show examples of how other people and institutions are using the Archive
