|Archiving status||Saved by itself|
The Internet Archive is a non-profit digital library with the stated mission/motto: "universal access to all knowledge". The Internet Archive stores several billion webpages from different dates and times for historical purposes that are available through the Wayback Machine, arguably an archivists wet dream. The Archive.org website also archives books, music and videos.
There are currently two mirrors of the Internet Archive collection - the official mirror available at archive.org, and a second mirror at Bibliotheca Alexandrina. Both seem to be up and stable.
