The Internet Archive is a non-profit digital library with the stated mission of "universal access to all knowledge." A vast majority of the content on The Public Domain Review is sourced from its enormous archives of books, films and audio material. Highlights include the Prelinger Archives, a fantastic collection of ephemeral and public service films on a huge range of topics, from how to be popular to surviving a nuclear attack, and a great collection of 78rpm records and cylinder recordings. Many institutions from all over the world use the Internet Archive to house and provide access to their material. There is a default general non-commercial "Terms of Use" statement in operation in the site but it is overridden should the institution, digitising sponsor, or individual uploader make a statement to the contrary on the site. Many institutions - such as the California Digital Library, The Royal Society, and University of Toronto Libraries - have done so and so have openly licensed digital copies on the site.
