We're going to be archived by the British Library

I had an email today from the British Library Web Archiving Programme. The British Library Archive is extending its remit, and now instead of just preserving printed matter, it is extending the archiving process to other contemporary forms of documentation. Websites and blogs are now included in their archives.

They have chosen this blog and the FitzhenryDNA site for archiving, so we will be preserved as long as the British Library exists (and it's got a pretty good record for longevity, having started in 1857 as the British Museum Reading Room).

Anyway, all this deserves a big Hurrah!

Here's more about the Web Archiving Programme at www.webarchive.org.uk
