ADL Web Site Included in Library Of Congress Archive On Sept. 11 Attacks
New York, NY, October 18, 2001 … The Anti-Defamation League's online response to September 11 will become part of the national historic record, as the U.S. Library of Congress builds an electronic archive of the terrorist attacks against America.
ADL's Web site, www.adl.org, has been selected for inclusion in The September 11 Web Archive, a Library of Congress project in collaboration with The Internet Archive and WebArchivist.org to create for posterity a national digital record of the disaster. ADL's Web pages will be permanently archived along with those of news organizations, civil rights groups, government agencies and other Internet sites that responded in the immediate aftermath of the attacks.
"It is an honor for ADL to be selected for inclusion as part of the nation's permanent historic record of the September 11 attacks," said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director. "We have been very proactive in updating our Web site with timely information and resources."
ADL is an 88-year-old civil rights organization that fights anti-Semitism, prejudice and bigotry and safeguards religious freedom and liberty. The League has maintained an online presence since 1996; this summer, the League introduced a section of the ADL Web site designed to provide information on extremists and hate groups to law enforcement, the Law Enforcement Agency Resource Network, or L.E.A.R.N.
Since September 11, ADL has made available online reports on terrorism and terrorist groups, including background on Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda. The League's press releases and articles have been featured along with information on ADL's efforts to respond to bias incidents against Muslim Americans, Arab Americans, Jews and others in the aftermath of the attacks. Additionally, ADL has featured online its award winning A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE® anti-bias education materials for parents, educators and children.
