Welcome to the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Internet Archive, a non-official wiki about the Internet Archive.
Created as a way to fill in the blanks of the lore, function, and learned tips of archive.org, this Wiki is meant to allow beginning or advanced users of the Archive to learn, share information and make the most of one of the Internet's crown jewels. It is neither endorsed nor supported by the Internet Archive or archive.org.
CURRENTLY IN BETA, this project has a War Room which is meant to begin expansion of subjects and links out to known information about the Archive. There are further ideas for small tasks that will help kick-start the Guide in Ramping Up.
