U.S. Library of Congress Taps BrewersAssociation.org Website for Historic Collection

The United States Library of Congress has selected BrewersAssociation.org for inclusion in the Library’s historic collection of Internet materials related to public policy topics. The website is considered to be an important part of this collection and a historical record.

The Library of Congress preserves the Nation’s cultural artifacts and provides enduring access to them. The Library’s traditional functions, acquiring, cataloging, preserving and serving collection materials of historical importance to the Congress and the American people to foster education and scholarship, extend to digital materials, including websites.

The web archives are important because they contribute to the historical record, capturing information that could otherwise be lost. With the growing role of the web as an influential medium, records of historic events could be considered incomplete without materials that were “born digital” and never printed on paper. For more information about these web archive collections, visit their website.
