As part of its continuing mission to catalog and preserve our shared digital history, the Internet Archive has published a collection of more than 900 classic arcade games, playable directly in a Web browser via a Javascript emulator.

The Internet Arcade collects a wide selection of titles, both well-known and obscure, ranging from “bronze age” black-and-white classics like 1976s Sprint 2 up through the dawn of the early 90s fighting game boom in Street Fighter II. In the middle are a few historical oddities, such as foreign Donkey Kong bootleg Crazy Kong and the hacked “Pauline Edition” of Donkey Kong that was created by a doting father just last year.

The School Archivist

Did you know that September is National Preparedness Month?

You think that disasters are probably going to happen to other institutions, and not your own. You hear about the flooding a storage area from an overhead pipe or water breaking through a wall. There is news about a catastrophic fire in an older county courthouse. Someone mentioned rumors of squirrels eating some of the older records in an attic storage area. The question is not IF a disaster will strike your collections, but WHEN. So your job as an archivist it to pre-empt the possible disasters and create a disaster plan.

There are precautions you can use as an archivist…
