Subject: Library of Congress Permission Request
To Whom It May Concern:

The United States Library of Congress has selected your Web site for inclusion
in its historic collections of Internet materials. The Library's traditional
functions, acquiring, cataloging, preserving and serving collection materials
of historical importance to the Congress and the American people to foster
education and scholarship, extend to digital materials, including Web sites. We
request your permission to collect your Web site and add it to the Library's
research collections. We also ask that we be allowed to display the archived
version(s) of your Web site.

The following URL has been selected:

With your permission, the Library of Congress or its agent will engage in the
collection of content from your Web site at regular intervals over time. The
Library will make this collection available to researchers onsite at Library

The Library also wishes to make the collection available to offsite researchers
by hosting the collection on the Library's public access Web site. The Library
hopes that you share its vision of preserving materials and permitting
researchers from across the world to access them.

If you agree to permit the Library to collect your Web site, please click the
following link to signify your consent. This link also includes a separate
consent for permitting the Library to provide offsite access to your materials
through the Library's Web site. by webmaster)

For several years, the Library of Congress has collected Web sites within
certain themes or topics, and we were required to seek permission for each new
collection developed by the Library, even if permission had been granted in the
past. As our collections have grown, we have had to contact some Web site
producers repeatedly. To reduce this duplicaiton and to save site owners from
having to respond to multiple requests for information, we are now requesting
blanket permissions for the Library to collect, over time and in varying
frequency, sites of research interest. If you grant blanket permissions and in
the future you no longer wish to be included in the Library's Web archives,
please contact us and we will cease collection of your URL.

Please respond to this request at your earliest convenience so that we may add
this URL to the Library's research collection. We appreciate your cooperation
with our efforts to preserve these Internet materials.

If you have questions, comments or recommendations concerning the Library of Congress's Web Archives, please e-mail the Library's Web Capture team at your earliest convenience. For more information about other Web Archive collections please visit
