The Internet Archive has been a strategic partner of the Wikimedia movement since its beginning, with the Wayback Machine archiving cited sources and fixing dead links in Wikipedia articles to point to web.archive.org content. This invaluable service (Turn All References Blue) has led to other projects to add permanent (archived) URLs to digitized resources such as web pages, books, TV News clips, and academic papers.

The format is a discussion that would follow a brief update by Mark Graham, director of the Wayback Machine. The goal of the session will be to share progress and to brainstorm and inspire efforts to scale the efforts so that millions of additional links can be added to existing Wikipedia articles.

Session Outcomes

[edit | edit source]

Attendees will:

  • Obtain a better understanding of the Internet Archive's activities in archiving links in the Wikimedia projects
  • Contribute to the direction of the Internet Archive's future activities

I'm planning to attend this session live!
