Abstract: Not too long ago, America''s culture was recorded mainly on paper, vinyl and film, and deposited at the Library of Congress and the U.S. Copyright Office. Nowadays, the seeds of future history may be flowing in huge volume from Web designers and content providers directly into peoples'' homes, and the Library of Congress and other archivists are trying to create new systems to ensure the information is saved.
