    British Library are going to archive this site

    Here is the email I got in from them...

    Dear Sir/Madam,


    The British Library would like to archive your website in the UK Web Archive and to make it publicly available. The UK Web Archive was established in 2004 to capture and archive websites from the UK domain and across the web, responding to the challenge of a digital black hole in the nations memory. It contains specially selected websites that represent different aspects of UK heritage on the web, as well as important global events. We work closely with leading international institutions to collect and permanently preserve the web, and the open UK Web Archive can be seen at http://www.webarchive.org.uk/.

    Your completed licence form has been submitted successfully, thank you.

    http://www.electricscotland.org/foru...18-Lossiemouth, http://www.electricscotland.org/foru...12-Communities, http://www.electricscotland.org/foru...-amp-Genealogy, http://www.electricscotland.org/foru...p/80-Lifestyle, http://www.electricscotland.org/foru...ctric-Scotland, http://www.electricscotland.org/foru.../15-Old-Timers, http://www.electricscotland.org/forumdisplay.php/1-Main, http://www.electricscotland.org/

    The British Library is very pleased to have received your submission for the UK Web Archive which we will process as soon as possible.

    Please note that although we make every effort to archive websites as completely as possible there is much that cannot be archived for technical reasons. Further details can be found in the Technical information section http://www.webarchive.org.uk/ukwa/info/technical.

    Your website may not be available to view in the public archive for some time as we archive many thousands of websites and perform quality assurance checks on each instance. Due to the high number of submissions we receive, regrettably we cannot inform you when individual websites will be available to view in the archive at http://www.webarchive.org.uk/ but please do check the archive regularly as new sites are added every day.

    In the meantime many thanks for participating in the UK Web Archive and please do nominate other websites that you think may be in scope for us, http://www.webarchive.org.uk/ukwa/info/nominate.

    Kind regards,

    Nicola Bingham
    Lead Curator, Web Archives

    Just to say that they are also archiving both ElectricScotland.com and ElectricCanadian.com now as well.
