Internet Archive: All natural resources in Wikipedia are digitized

Wikipedia is one website, whoever searches for a topic will always be consulted for information. It has the ability to provide answers to anything you search for on Google or Bing.

The reason people trust Wikipedia is that every information they give backs it up with references. So anyone who has doubts about some information can check if the source is reliable. Of course, many of her sources are based on books, such as the entry for him Martin Luther King Jr., something that if you want to confirm, you need to find a copy of the book.

Now of course, with the initiative of Internet Archive, you can search for a book to see one preview two pages of the cited work, provided that the report specifies page numbers. You can also borrow a digital copy of the book, if no one else has borrowed it, like a regular library.

So far, the Internet Archive has converted 130.000 references to Wikipedia articles and various languages ​​with direct 50.000 book links that the organization has scanned and made available to the public.

"Our goal is to make a library that is useful and accessible to more people," says Mark Graham, director of service Wayback Machine of the Internet Archive.

If the Internet Archive project is successful, it will be of benefit to students, journalists or anyone who wants to check the references of a Wikipedia entry.

The Internet Archive has begun its quest to add digital books to Wikipedia after the 2016 election. THE service The agency's Wayback Machine archived 387 billions of websites from 2001. He has also digitized physical books and analogue media and scanned 3,8 millions of books.

Graham and company created InternetArchiveBot, a tool that scans Wikipedia to check for broken links and automatically adds links to archived versions of Machine Wayback.

Finally, of course the Internet Archive has not scanned all of them books listed on Wikipedia yet. Graham said the organization scans more than 1.000 books a day. But he still has a lot of work to do.
