The Infinite Archive

The Infinite Archive: "International cooperation is vital to the quest for the infinite archive, too. Just this past fall, the Library of Congress joined with the national libraries of 11 other countries, including Australia, Britain, Canada, Finland, France, Iceland, and Sweden, to form a consortium to develop tools to capture and share digital content.
According to Laura Campbell, the library’s associate librarian for strategic initiatives, the consortium will begin by developing specifications for crawler tools and “will work toward a general framework within which we can all work and ultimately manage digital content.” "


Alô?.. Portugal?....
