About ibiblio.org

What I said in 1992

Archives look for interesting collections; we look for interesting people creating interesting collections in interesting ways. We collect the collectors and empower them.

What I said in 2001

Open (source)ing the doors for contributor-run digital libraries Communications of the ACM. Volume 44, Issue 5 (May 2001). Pages: 45 - 46.

By adopting not only the open-source tools, but also the open-source philosophy encouraging community interaction and contributor involvement, digital libraries can open new horizons to new communities as well as greatly improve traditional services.

  • On December 12, 2006 -- Edvard Munch's birthday -- the Google logo link placed ibiblio's WebMuseum as the top Munch resource. That day we handled over 24 million requests in 24 hours! A great testimony to our server architecture and our great new hosting facilities at NCREN.
