Three Cheers for Volunteers

There is a back room at the Internet Archive office that houses stacks and stacks of classic comedy lps collected for digitization and archiving. Thanks to a steadfast volunteer, Kris Koeller, many of these lps have been run through the digitization process and archived within our database, forever immortalizing comedy greats such as Woody Allen and Cheech and Chong.

At the Internet Archive, it is often that we rely on the sort of kindness and generosity that Kris has been able to give us. As most non-profits can vouch for, it takes a lot of help and determination from many people to keep things running, and volunteers at the Archive make that possible.

As Kris moves on from the Archive, more volunteers are slated to fill his shoes, ensuring that as much material as possible is able to be archived.

From all of us at Internet Archive, we thank you, Kris. Your work will allow others to keep on laughing.

    (I know, it needs updating!) I found you on TED and cannot believe this! I’ve been struggling to preserve my once-played (then taped) LPs from the Intl. Preview Society, etc. and also scanning my own works via Kurzweil, and then watched Kahle on TED – a breeze from the ocean.

    I have to utilize adaptive software due to vision impairment, but extensive exp. in NGOs, et al. Can I help you in any way?

  4. Thank you so much for your interest in volunteering!
    Please email info@archive.org with “Volunteer Opportunity” in the subject line for more information.
    We’d love to hear from you!
