The historical collection of web content generated during the Internet Memory Foundation’s (IMF) activity has been donated to Arquivo.pt and is now searchable!
The IMF was a European organization dedicated to preserving web content that was wound up in 2018.
The 1st web archiving project in Europe (2004-2010) was led by Julien Masanès (who was guest of honour at the celebration of 10 years of Arquivo.pt) and was called European Archive Foundation.
In 2010, Julien Masanès, the “father” of Web archives in Europe created the IMF.
