Community: A New Name for “Open Source” Collections

Internet Archive has changed the names of the Open Source Audio, Open Source Books, and Open Source Movies collections.  We have chosen to replace the term “Open Source” with “Community,” because we feel it better reflects the purpose of these collections and the people who donated the content.

Open Source typically refers to free access to source code and open distribution. Wikipedia has a detailed definition of the term at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_Source_Definition.

Please be assured that none of the URLs for collections or items have changed – if you have links to our site for any content, those links will continue to work.

We hope you agree that this change better reflects their purpose.  Please visit our newly renamed collections:
