UK Web Archive

The British Library has invited the BCT website to participate in their web archiving programme. Its purpose is to collect, preserve and give permanent access to key UK websites for future generations.  Selected websites are considered to be of long term research value, either in themselves or as part of a special collection of themes. The BCT’s blog pages will be of particular importance as:

“The UK blogosphere (connected community of web logs) has burgeoned since the late 1990’s and early 2000s, due in part to more straightforward publishing processes. This collection represents a cross section of UK web blogs containing a wealth of material which will be of value to researchers now and in the future.”

The archive is free to view, accessed directly from the web itself and since archiving began in 2004 has collected thousands of websites which BCT will be apart of!
