A 13m-long tapestry of Magna Carta's Wikipedia article is to be unveiled today at the British Library.
The tapestry, created by artist Cornelia Parker, has been stitched together by more 200 people, including Edward Snowden and Jarvis Cocker, to celebrate the Magna Carta's 800th anniversary.
The British Library is hoping to ensure rare recordings are preserved for future generations by digitising its entire sound archive of around 6.5 million recordings, at a cost of £40 million.
Its collection is spread over more than 40 formats, including wax cylinders and lacquer discs, and experts may have just 15 years to complete the task before many become unplayable.
The library has now launched a campaign, Living Knowledge, to raise funds to store the archive electronically.
A group of students has turned an old map from the British Library into a realistic 3D animation of 17th Century London.
The students, from De Montford University in Leicester, picked up first prize in the 'Off The Map' competition for their fly-through of London as it looked before the Great Fire of 1666.
The team impressed judges with attention to detail and tightly packed streets. Some of the buildings are hypothetical, but all streets are based on original maps around Pudding Lane. The main animation begins after 50 seconds.

A rule book credited with helping shape the national sport of football goes on display at the British Library today.
The 1863 FA Minute Book charts the regulations for "the beautiful game", including the size of the pitch, how the game should start, what happens when the ball goes out of play and the rules on handling the ball.
Roy Hodgson, manager of the England men's side, will join Football Association chairman Greg Dyke to present the vintage exhibit to the British Library as part of the FA's 150th anniversary celebrations.
Regulations come into force at midnight tonight, which allow the British Library to begin archiving the entire UK web domain.
Billions of webpages, blogs and e-books will also be preserved in order to document the digital age.
The library could eventually collect copies of every public Tweet or Facebook page in the British web domain.
