The Internet Archive is a digital library "of millions of free books, movies, software, music, websites, and more."[1] Their main claim to fame is the Wayback Machine, an archive of the web dating back to 1996, but many other digital collections have been added to the site, some uploaded by regular users. See the Wikipedia page for more.

Fans have long used the Wayback Machine to find fanfiction and fansites that have disappeared. Because the site allows users to upload materials, some fans have used the Internet Archive as a fanworks archive.
