Library of Congress selects LFYT for preservation
We are pleased to announce that the Library of Congress has selected the first publication of the Alliance for Networking Visual Culture for inclusion in their historic collection of Internet materials.Â The born-digital ‘video-book,’ Learning from YouTube, by Alex Juhasz with design by Craig Dietrich, was published on February 7th, 2011 by MIT Press.
As reported on the LOC website, the Library’s Office of Strategic Initiatives in 2004 created a Web Archiving team to support the goal of managing and sustaining born digital content. The team is charged with building a Library-wide understanding and technical infrastructure for capturing Web content. The team, in collaboration with a variety of Library staff, and national and international partners, is identifying policy issues, establishing best practices and building tools to collect and preserve Web content.Â We are delighted that LFYT will be included in this important initiative.
