The Archives of Michigan. The Archives of Michigan initially conceptualized CWD150 as an opportunity to leverage state efforts going into the Civil War Sesquicentennial and build on that momentum to begin making data connections across local, state, and federal archives. SeekingMichigan.org, a joint project with the Archives of Michigan and Library of Michigan, provides a unique digital combination of presentation and discovery of state holdings, including a large collection of Civil War related assets.
The Internet Archive. The Internet Archive is a non-profit, digital library based in San Francisco that has been archiving the web since 1996. The Internet Archive maintains one of the largest, public web archives in the world, a freely-accessible archive of over 150 billion web pages harvested from 1996 to the present, as well as almost 2 million public domain texts, hundreds of thousands of still and moving images, video and audio files, and tens of thousands of software titles and educational resources.
