Virtual Volunteering with Internet Archive

Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine ( is a  non-profit that is building the worlds largest  digital library of Internet sites and other information from our lifetime in digital form.  With the goal in mind to  to provide Universal Access to All Knowledge.   We are always looking for volunteers to help submit   various digital artifacts. These artifacts include copyright-free text, software, recordings, movies, and old versions of websites.


There are different roles that you can perform as a volunteer for this organization. You can volunteer as an Open Library Developer, Open Librarian, or at any special events that take place over the course of the year. There are over 30 events hosted annually by this organization and volunteers help to make these events as successful as they are. There are plenty of opportunities no matter what your interests are,

By volunteering with this non-profit organization, you can help people get access to a wide variety of information especially when it comes to web history. Not everyone has access to a library to get this information and you are giving them the opportunity to access it for free.

There is no time commitment requirement for this organization.

Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine was created in 1996 actually archiving the internet, which was still beginning to grow in popularity at the time. There is a special focus on digitalizing books so that people who normally wouldn’t have access to these can read the books that they want and need to read. The site itself serves millions of people daily, making it one of the top 300 websites across the globe. This organization is entirely funded by donations, grants, and through providing web archiving for their partners. Privacy is important to this organization because they know it’s important to their patrons.
