The Internet Archive is a non-profit digital library with the stated mission of "universal access to all knowledge."

[ 4 ] The amount of data that the Internet Archive collects is massive and has grown quickly. In 2005, 40 billion webpages were archived with a total collection amonted to more than a petabyte of data. [ 5 ] It provides permanent storage of and free public access to collections of digitized materials, including websites, music, moving images, and nearly three million public-domain books; as of October 2012 it held over 10 petabytes in cultural material. [ 6 ] The Internet Archive allows the public to upload and download digital material to its data cluster, and provides unrestricted online access to that material at no cost.

It is both a commemoration of the Library of Alexandria that was lost in antiquity , and an attempt to rekindle something of the brilliance that this earlier center of study and erudition represented.
