British Library sets out to archive the Web

In this photo taken Wednesday, April 3, 2013, a screen showcasing the British Library latest task is seen in London. Capturing the unruly, ever-changing Internet is like trying to pin down a raging river. But the British Library is going to try. For centuries the library has preserved a copy of every book, pamphlet, magazine and newspaper published in Britain. Starting Saturday, April 6, 2013, it will also be bound to record every website, e-book and blog, in a bid to preserve the nation's "digital memory." (AP Photo/Lefteris Pitarakis)
