A new and growing web archive of "social, historic and culturally significant web-based material from the UK domain" is now online. It's called the UK Web Archive and is being developed by the UK Web Archiving Consortium (UKWAC) that includes members from the Joint Information Systems Committee of the Higher and Further Education Councils (JISC), The National Archives, The National Library of Wales, the National Library of Scotland and the Wellcome Trust.

Here are a few fast facts about the project:
+ UKWAC Has Been Archiving Material for Six Months
+ Browse by Topic or Search (You're searching metadata)
+ Archive Currently Contains 299 Titles and 1090 Web Sites
+ 84 GB of Data Archived So Far
+ Using PANDAS software developed at the National Library of Australia
