James Moran Middle School is located in Wallingford, CT half-way between New York and Boston. The Library of Congress Archive group was made up of 25 volunteers who met after school to select websites for inclusion into the Archive. After selecting almost 100 websites, we found patterns that were used to create our three collections: Entertainment, Shopping, and Social Networking. It was incredibly exciting to be able to contribute to the collection and have the opportunity to be involved in helping to write the history of our era. Hopefully when historians are able to reflect on our entries 1000’s of years from now they will see how we had a strong need to connect, create, and of course, go shopping online!



Lakeview High School is located in Battle Creek, Michigan and has a student population of over 1300 students. Lakeview is implementing the K12 Archiving Program through its Cultural Literacy classes. While using both primary and secondary sources, these students analyze the cultural impact of the movies, songs, sports, books, etc. at the time, the impact they still have today, and the impact they have on each individual student. By doing this analysis, students are able to develop an understanding of what might be important to researchers studying our culture in the future.
