About The Israeli Internet Archive

The Israeli Internet Archive is intended to preserve online publications published on Israeli websites for coming generations, just as books and other printed material are preserved.

In recent years the internet has become a central arena for Israeli culture, a place where a large number of written and visual materials are published. The materials that are published in the virtual world are an important part of the cultural life of the State of Israel and Israeli public discourse, and it is the library's duty to be concerned with their preservation for researchers, students and all those who are interested- today and in the future.

At this stage, the National Library will copy and preserve Israeli websites that are listed under the ending *.il, and some additional websites that are under Israeli geolocation or relevant to the Israeli public.

This is relevant only to public websites. The project began in September 2013 and will copy many thousands of websites.

Any change in policy regarding the Internet Archive will be accompanied by a notice to be published on the National Library's website.
