web archivist aims to preserve every print book

Richmond, California-
Hiding in a small dead warehouse.
Internet pioneer end street is building a bunker to protect endangered species: printed text.
The 50-year-old Brewster Culler created the nonprofit Internet Archive in 1996 to keep a copy of every web page published. Now the MIT-
Trained computer scientists and entrepreneurs are working to protect and share knowledge in an attempt to keep a physical copy of each book published.
\"Books will always have a character,\" says Calle, who sits on the edge of a container and will soon be deceived as a climate --
Control the storage unit.
Each container can hold about 40,000 volumes, equivalent to the size of a branch library.
\"We want to see books exist forever.
CBS News poll controversial police video massive power outage
Earlier this year, CBS\'s \"60 Minutes\" aired a rare sight of the Vatican Library\'s vast collection of historical treasures. )
Precious video of the Vatican Library: visit the Vatican Library Video: Why the library has been closed to the public so far, and kale has collected about 500,000 books.
He believes that the warehouse itself is large enough to accommodate about 1 million titles, each with a bar code that identifies the cartons, pallets and containers it is in.
This is much less than about 0. 13 billion different books Google engineers have been involved in the company\'s book scanning project.
But Calle said they were relaxed in the first half.
The millions of donated texts have led him to be optimistic about achieving the 10 million realistic goal, which is equivalent to a major university library.
The New York judge refused to accept Google book settlement. The judge declined to accept Google book settlement, \"The idea is to be able to collect a copy of all published books.
\"We won\'t succeed, but that\'s our goal,\" he said . \"
Recently, the staff of the office upstairs in the warehouse opened a box of books and entered the information of each title into the database.
These books include The White Whale and The Hunchback of Notre.
\"Complete Basic books for home decoration\" and \"big rica For Dummies \".
\"In the early stages of the book collection process, specific titles were not found as large collections did.
Copies of books already in the file will be re-copied
Donated elsewhere.
If someone does need to see an actual physical copy of a book, Calle says it should be no more than an hour to pick up the book from a dark and dry home.
\"The dedicated idea is to maintain the physical security of these physical materials for a long time and then give the world access to digital versions,\" says Kale . \".
In addition to keeping the books cool and dry, Kayle plans to do this using the modified shipping coin container, the book preservation expert said, he will have to fight against pests and about a century of books printed on pulp cardboard pallet display that rot over time due to their own acidity.
Peter Hanff, acting director of the Bank Croft Library, University of California, Berkeley\'s Special Collection and Rare Books Library, said that simply putting books on the West Coast would avoid climate fluctuations, this is the norm in other parts of the country.
He praised digitization as a way to make it easier to access books, manuscripts and other materials.
But he also believes that numbers don\'t make physical objects obsolete.
People feel \"intimate\" with artifacts, such as a letter written by Einstein, or papyrus dating back thousands of years.
\"Some people just respond to this with strong emotions,\" Hanff said . \".
\"You suddenly connect with something very old and bring you back to the past.
\"Since graduating from Calle University in early 1980, he has been working on how to create a digital version of what he calls the legendary library of ancient Egypt, Alexandria.
He currently leads an initiative called Open Library, which has scanned about 3 million books now available online for free.
Many of these scanned books are borrowed from the library.
But Calle said he began to notice that when the books were returned, the Library sometimes threw them away in order to make more space on the shelves.
Once a book is digitized, the rationale disappears and the book itself is no longer needed.
While Caler has devoted his life to the prospect of digital technology, he finds that his confidence in comparison and bytes is not enough to put cardboard pallet display and ink aside.
While he firmly believes that the promise of the Internet will make it easier for more people to acquire knowledge than ever before, he fears that e-books will have a digital utopia that is too confident.
He said he just had a heartfelt reaction to the idea that books were thrown away.
\"Over time, knowledge exists in many different forms,\" says Calle.
\"First in the memory of people, then in the manuscript, then in the printed books, and then in the microfilm, CD-
ROMS, now on the digital Internet.
Every generation is important.
\"When each new format appears, it is often called the end.
All the way to package information.
But Calle points out that even digital books have a physical home on a hard drive somewhere.
He believes that physical artifacts that preserve information storage are a way to hedge future uncertainty. (
In addition to the books, Calle also plans to store old internet archive servers that were replaced at the end of last year. )
Caler thinks the book is not like another library in Congress (
33 million copies, according to the library website)
More like the Svalbard Global Seed Bank, an Arctic underground cave built to avoid --
Replica of world foodcrop seeds.
These books do not mean regular lending, but are protected as authoritative reference copies, if the digital version somehow disappears into the cloud, or there is a problem with the electronic version
Faithful to the original printed version of the book
\"What I\'m worried about is that people will think it\'s disrespectful to books.
They think we just buried them in the basement . \"
But what drives the project, he says, is his commitment to the survival of books.
\"These are the objects of another day\'s life.
