Around the World in 2 Billion Pages


In December 2006, Internet Archive was honored to receive a grant from the Mellon Foundation for our ongoing development of the Heritrix web crawler. Using this grant, Internet Archive will be embarking on a 2 billion page web crawl this Summer. This will be the largest web crawl we have ever attempted.

We are currently seeking url submissions for this historic crawl from libraries and archives as well as other cultural and memory institutions. We especially want international web content from a large variety of countries, geographic regions and language bases.

Please help us gather this content! You will need a log in name/password to contribute URLs. Please email aroundtheworld at for an invitation.
