The British Library has announced it has launched a new online archive which features back issues of more than 200 newspapers from the UK and Ireland.
The British Library is planning on scanning a whopping 40 million UK newspaper pages over the next ten years, as part of a new UK news archive initiative.
The British Library, along with several other institutions, has warned that the UK's web heritage could vanish forever if it's not granted the "right to archive" - that is, to capture and keep sites.
Arbitrary data archival lengths is not about finding a deep enough hole, it's about keeping your data with you at all times.
No longer do you have to sift through the daily papers to see fantastic cartoon artwork created by the likes of Ralph Steadman, Martin Rowson and Steve Bell, as thousands of their pieces are to be made available for free online.
