UK Web Archive

ukwa-logo-150As you may know, this website has been going since June 2000, and so is one of the oldest, continually updated local birding web-sites on the web. Over the years it has built up a collection of useful information and it seemed like a good idea to preserve it.  The British Library has a project called UK Web Archive and as they say:

“There are millions of UK websites. They are constantly changing and even disappearing. Often they contain information that is only available online. Responding to the challenge of a potential “digital black hole” the UK Web Archive is there to safeguard as many of these websites as practical. Its purpose is to collect, preserve and give permanent access to key UK websites for future generations.”

The Ayrshire Birding web site is about to be added to this archive, so you can now rest easy knowing that all this stuff will be available for your descendants to peruse.
