Geograph archival at the British Library

In a recent post I mentioned I’d been trying in vain to see if the British Library were interesting in archiving Geograph.

I finally managed to reach the right people this week and they sound enthusiastic about the idea, but sadly their current technology is not equal to the task. The archive is just too big for them to handle, but they are working on their systems to make this possible next year.

We’ve got the equipment and the funds to keep the site running for at least 3 more years, with a good chance of being able to ensure it is funded for many more years. But, if those plans should come to naught, it’s nice to know that the archive will preserved for future generations!
