#Ferguson at the Internet Archive

Via Archive-It, the Internet Archive is building a comprehensive collection of information and discussion related to the August 2014 police shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.

The project partner responsible, Internet Archive Global Events, comprises the Archive-It team in collaboration with other partners. The Internet Archive invites the public to suggest specific content—news articles, blog posts, other social media, and more—for the collection by submitting the relevant URL, or seed. I’m sure the legal commentaries on federal and state grand juries and indictments, including contrasts with Canadian criminal process, published this week will make useful content.

The project partner describes the collection, development of which began in August 2014 after Mr Brown’s death:

This is a collection of web content related to the August 9th, 2014 shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO. The collection includes news articles, blogs, social media, and other websites from within the community of Ferguson and around the world. This collection contains contributions from Archive-It partner Washington University in St. Louis, MO as well as crowd sourced content. We appreciate everyone’s contributions and will continue to record the events as they unfold. Note: Many of these sites contain videos, some of which may not play back in the page. To view archived videos click on the Videos link in the yellow banner at the top of the archived web page.

Those who have URLs to contribute are asked to use the Ferguson, MO Seed Submission Form (a Google form) to supply the relevant information.
