The EU referendum debate

As this post from the UK Web Archive Blog explains work has been ongoing to capture the EU referendum debate by a team curating for the Legal Deposit UK Web Archive.

The British Library and curators from the Bodleian Libraries are now working on a ‘Brexit’ collection.  We have all seen in the last few weeks how quickly the political landscape can change dramatically and with that digital content changes or disappears very quickly. So the curation team is working hard to collect, for example, documents, websites, social media and academic debate for posterity. Separate collections are also being developed looking at the impact of Brexit on Scotland, Ireland and Wales, which are being coordinated by the relevant national libraries.

Access to the Legal Deposit UK Web Archive is via the readings room of the legal deposit libraries, the British Library, Bodleian Libraries, University of Oxford, Cambridge University LibraryNational Library of Wales, National Library of Scotland and the Library of Trinity College, Dublin.
