British Library to Archive Electronic Resources

The British Library is a government-owned library that legally has to hold a copy of every book, pamphlet, map, journal, newspaper and piece of sheet music published in the UK. That law has changed and now the Library will be able to collect non-paper resources, such as web sites, electronic journals, CD-ROMs and microfilms. Obviously, the library won’t be archiving everything in these categories, but will be keeping resources of national, historical or academic interest
