with Dr. James F. McGrath and Brad Matthies

This session will introduce faculty and other interested parties to
the Internet Archive, located at This site includes two
major features that are useful to academics, each suggested by its

First, the site has an archive of the internet. Most if not all of
us have found useful information online, only to go back later and find
that it had vanished. Using what is referred to as the “Wayback
Machine,” the site allows you to enter a URL and in most cases find
cached copies of the pages from the site in question. For those
creating web links for use by students, it is possible to create links
to the internet archive’s static copy of a site and maximize the
chances that the page linked to will remain as it is.

Second, the site has an archive of out-of-print books and audio
recordings which can be embedded into a web page or downloaded. Some of
the same books are available on Google Books, but many others are not.
In addition to books and journals in a number of convenient formats,
there are classical recordings and much else.

The session, led by Dr. James F. McGrath from the Department of
Philosophy and Religion in collaboration with Brad Matthies from the
library, will introduce the site, its use, and the resources available
there. Attendees will have the opportunity to try out the site and look
for resources of the particular sort most relevant to their own needs
and interests.

Light refreshments will be provided.
