Kulturarw3 (
National Library of Sweden
The Royal Library (Kungl. biblioteket, abbreviated KB), National Library of Sweden, tasked since 1661 with collecting all Swedish printed publications, has inaugurated a project, entitled Kulturarw3 (The Swedish Archiw3e), with a view to the long-term preservation of electronic documents. The aim of this project is to test methods of collecting, preserving and providing access to Swedish electronic documents which are accessible on line in such a way that they can be regarded as published. Through this project KB is also laying the foundations of a collection of Swedish electronic publishing for our time and for coming generations. Kulturaw3 uses NWA-Combine, a modified version of the Combine harvester, optimized for archiving purposes.

The Internet Archive is a 501(c)(3) public nonprofit that was founded to build an `Internet library,' with the purpose of offering free access to historical digital collections for researchers, historians, and scholars. Founded in 1996 and located in the Presidio of San Francisco, the Archive has been receiving data donations from Alexa Internet and others. In late 1999, the organization started to grow to build more well-rounded collections. The Internet archive uses the Alexa indexer to perform its crawls.
