British library goes live with collection  
The British Library (BL) has unveiled Collect Britain, a �3.25m digitisation project, putting 100,000 unique and rare items from its collections on the web.

From Computing.

Users will be able to build their own folders of images and sounds over time, enabling them to develop a personal resource tool....By entering their postcode or key terms for favourite subjects, users can also be sure to be notified when new content matching their area of interest is added to the collections.

Looks good. I especially like the notification and personalisation aspects.
