Digital Archive Projects--United Kingdom
Source: The Guardian
"British Library Begins Website Archive"
From the article, Stephen Bury, the head of European and American collections at the [British] library, said there is a need for an objective, trusted archive that will still be around in 200 years. Mr Bury said that without the archive, important aspects of British culture will disappear as websites change. He sited an art project in which a London taxi became a roving canvas. The taxi has ceased to do its rounds, but the project is preserved - for now - at cabgallery.com. However future generations would lose access to the project if it is not archived."
