Universal Access to All Knowledge

The Internet Archive champions the lofty goal of enabling Universal Access to All Knowledge for as many patrons as possible. Progress towards this goal requires both that we engage with the broader community to better understand the needs of our diverse, global audience, and that we incorporate perspectives and contributions from this community. Especially given the organizational mission alignment of the Internet Archive and Google, as well as Internet Archive's commitment to open source, open data, and cultivating inclusive communities, we're excited for the opportunity to continue expanding our offerings through the GSoC program while creating opportunities for students to find a sense of community where they may make an impact they can be proud of.
