UK: Libraries catching up on digital revolution  
 
Nicely written article from The Scotsman, summarising the Legal Deposit Libraries Act 2003, which extends legal deposit in the UK to digital information (both webpages and CDs). The article manages to cover concerns such as preservation, selection, and copyright.

Also interesting to note the other countries that have gone down this path:

The French government has issued a directive to ensure its national library collects all electronic material [which the UK won't be doing]. Norway, Finland and Denmark also have similar models, while Germany has new draft legislation in place.
