Library of Congress Archive adds born-digital content

Information Superhighway: Welcome to the Internet / Enjoy the Ride (via http://www.web-wise-wizard.com/internet-dns-web/)The Library of Congress has added two new born-digital collections to their archives.

The Webcomics Web Archive focuses on comics created specifically for the web and supplements the Library’s extensive holdings in comic books, graphic novels and original comic art. It has award-winning comics as well as webcomics that are significant for their longevity, reputation or subject matter. Also included are works by artists and subjects not traditionally represented in mainstream comics, including women artists and characters, artists and characters of color, LGBTQ+ artists and characters, as well as subjects such as politics, health and autobiography.

The Web Cultures Web Archive is a representative sampling of websites documenting the creation and sharing of emergent cultural traditions on the web such as GIFs, memes and emoji. As part of the American Folklife Center, the archive documents traditional cultural forms and practices, and the proliferation of smart phones, tablets, and wireless Internet connections has positioned networked communication as a space where people increasingly develop and share folklore.
