British Library to archive web

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.
