Way back machine works with thousands of partners and that too globally. They do so to save copies of their work into special collections. The one who is having a free account can easily upload their media to the internet archive. As we all know that it is a library and it deals with books. Not everyone can have easy access to public libraries, our site of Academic libraries are also there to help people with different books but here also we have to face the same problem of easy access. So to solve this problem and to provide easy access to all we have these digital versions of books and these are easily available. Anyone can take benefit of these books any time. One only has to make an account. This library started the work of programming the digital books in 2005 and today they scan 1000 books per day. This shows that the library has achieved a lot of success.  These books are scanned in different 28 locations around the world. The books which were published prior to 1923 are now available for download. There is one open library site available for the users and here people can make use of thousands of modem books. They can borrow these books also. But some of the digitized books are available to the customers only through print disabled. Television is also an ephemeral medium like the internet.  Archiving of the television programs was started in late 2000. First public TV project done by way back machine was an archive on T.V news covering the events of September 11, 2001. Then came the year 2009 when they began to make selected U.S television news broadcast. These were easily available in the T.V news archive. But it was to be searched by the caption.

Television now became a citable and sharable reference for users. It serves millions of people each day and provides them universal knowledge. It is considered one of the top 300 websites available in the world. If we talk about a single copy of the internet archive library then you will be shocked to know that it has a vast collection of 30+ petabytes of server space.

If you are an independent in a closed primary State, you will NOT be able to vote for any Democratic or Republican Party candidate, i.e. Hillary, Bernie, Jeb, Kasich, etc. 

What is an Open Primary?

In an open primary, the voter has the choice to vote in any one party without being officially affiliated or registered with that party. Example: I can vote in the Republican primary even though I am registered as a Democrat. Also important to note, you cannot vote in both primaries- you have to pick one.

What is a closed Primary?

You must be officially affiliated with a party to vote for that party. Example: If I want to vote for Bernie or Hillary, I have to be registered as a Democrat. If I am registered as an independent, I cannot vote for either/any of them in the Presidential Primary.


If you don’t vote, it is as if you don’t exist. Do your civic duty for you and your community and 
get registered to vote today regardless of where you live!
