Archiving online contents

The National Library Board (NLB) is undertaking a task to archive online contents of relevance to Singapore. These content include blogs of ordinary Singaporeans, which are growing at a phenomenal rate. The NLB aims to archive approximately 100 blogs about Singapore in time to come.

The NLB acknowledges that blogs written by Singaporeans can be an invaluable source to learn about Singapore life. Accounts of daily lives of Singaporeans, unabridged and uncensored, offer rich repositories of information of Singapore which other mass media may fail to purvey of.

At this era, knowledge and information are making inroads to the softcopy world rapidly to the extent that the hardcopy world may not be able to contend with.

The step by NLB is applauding and is a move in the right direction.
