With generous support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Internet Archive is joining forces with 24 partners to collect, preserve, and provide access to vital arts materials from the web. Membership in the new program includes national and regional art and museum libraries throughout the U.S. and Canada, and we’re actively seeking more US-based arts institutions to participate in the project too! To learn much more and join the collaboration, read the announcement: 24 Arts Organizations join the Collaborative ART Archive (CARTA).
