Artifacts from 21st-Century Online Culture

In June 2017, the Library of Congress debuted two collections featuring artifacts from 21st-century online culture. The Webcomics Web Archive features popular comics, such as Hyperbole and a Half, Dinosaur Comics! and Hark! A Vagrant—all with diverse art and offbeat humor that have captured large audiences since the medium launched with the dawn of the internet. The Web Cultures Web Archive has everything from urban legends to image macros, emoji to lolcats. The collection was put together by a group of scholars with the intent of documenting how the internet helps people create and share 21st-century folklore—today’s versions of nursery rhymes, chain letters, and riddles.
