Thank you for your interest in the September 11 Digital Archive.

While we are performing maintenance on the Archive, objects may still be submitted to the archive via the web interfaces located at These may not appear on the public website immediately, but will be preserved and made available for research in the future. We are no longer accepting collections of items. For the long term preservation of the Archive, we have partnered with the Library of Congress, which in September 2003 accepted the Archive into its permanent collections - an event that both ensured the Archive's long-term preservation and marked the Library's first major digital acquisition.

Regarding the rights management of materials in the archive, please be aware that the original contributors maintain copyright over all objects. We are no longer able to provide a referral service to secure these rights. If you are interested in using images from the archive, you may use the ones located at or which are in the public domain.
