Can You Chip In?

Free and open access to public information is critical for any functioning democracy. The Internet Archive (which runs this project) is announcing the Democracy’s Library initiative to digitize and catalog important government documents—including laws, scientific reports, safety standards, patents, and so much more—so that citizens everywhere can be better informed.

You can help us accomplish this work. We build and maintain all our own systems, relying on the generosity of individuals to help us keep the record straight. We'd be deeply grateful if you'd join the 1 in 1000 users that support us financially. If you find our resources useful, please pitch in.
