In the Library of Congress

When the School of Communications formally created the Imagining the Internet Center in 2007, we could not have imagined the center’s impact in just a few years.

And now we’ve learned that the U.S. Library of Congress has selected the Imagining the Internet website for inclusion in its historic collections of internet materials. The Library of Congress will collect content from the website at regular intervals and make the content available to researchers both onsite at library facilities and though the library’s public website.

Associate professor Janna Quitney Anderson is the brainchild and outstanding director of Elon’s Imagining the Internet Center.

Its website (www.imaginingtheinternet.org) now consists of more than 6,000 pages of predictions, insights, videos and news coverage. In addition, the center partners with the Pew Internet & American Life Project in Washington, D.C., on books and projects about the future of the internet.
