BRITISH LIBRARY SETS OUT TO ARCHIVE THE WEB

“Capturing the unruly, ever-changing Internet is like trying to pin down a raging river. But the British Library is going to try.

Now it will also record every British website, e-book, online newsletter and blog, in a bid to preserve the nation’s “digital memory.” (via The Associated Press)
