Apologies for the disruption to the UK Web Archive. We are experiencing some technical issues but are working to resolve them. Normal service should be resumed soon. In the meantime please check our Twitter feed for updates. @UKWebArchive

Nominate a Site

Since April 2013, the British Library has begun to archive the whole of the UK web domain under the terms of the Non-Print Legal Deposit Regulations 2013. This is done in an automated way, typically once a year.

We will be archiving sites:

  1. that are issued from a .uk or other UK geographic top-level domain, or;
  2. where part of the publishing process takes place in the UK;

We will not be archiving:

  1. sites concerning film and recorded sound where the audio-visual content predominates (but, for example, web pages containing video clips alongside text or images are within scope);
  2. private intranets and emails;
  3. personal data in social networking sites or that are only available to restricted groups.

We would like to hear from YOU if you own or know of a site that fits these criteria but that does not have a web address that ends with .uk.

You can also use this form to let us know about a site which may be about to go offline.
