Many library are going away Ministry did not want it Im not asking for money, just storage psace for 100.00 documents Its your memory, all we need is storage pase We are not in the business of storage

They think everything is online

What do it men that a culture think it don’t need its memory.

We got the mens to store the complete past. But we it seems to go up in smoke.

Scans the internet every 2months Library of everything

Universal knowledge

Library have hold a special place, outside commerce

The shape over a library is not that clear MD-GB-TB-PB MEGIA-GIGAL-TERA-PETA

Since 1996, every 2 months 300 billion pages in the wayback machine

University and library dual custodian of the past lab of the new

Tools to invite the new
