We are happy to announce that Libertarian Papers has been chosen for inclusion in the web archives of the Library of Congress. This means that, once archived, the complete journal will be available indefinitely both to researchers at Library facilities and by special arrangement. Of course, because Libertarian Papers uses an open-access format, the use of our content is not restricted to begin with, but we are nevertheless happy that the research we publish will be archived alongside numerous other important publications and records of note in the Library. Naturally, there is some irony in the fact that the Library of Congress wishes to preserve our content, but we take this new attention to be an indication of the increasing relevance of the research we publish.
