Diabetes Power Is Invited To Join The British Library Web Archive

The British Library Web Archive

Diabetes Power has been asked to join.
I am thrilled !! It is an honour to think that all the information that is on Diabetes Power's website will be viewed by future generations.

This is a copy of the email:

Dear Sir/Madam

The British Library would like to invite you to participate in our web archiving programme. We select and archive sites to represent aspects of UK documentary heritage and as a result, they will remain available to researchers in the future. The British Library works closely with leading UK institutions to collect and permanently preserve the UK web, and our archive can be seen at

There are benefits to you as a website owner in having your publication archived by the British Library such as having a historical record of your website. We aim to develop preservation mechanisms to keep your publication permanently accessible as hardware and software change over time.

I wonder what the Diabetes sites of the future will look like? Will they feature closed loop systems?
Hoping there will not be any as the cure will be found. So hopefully Diabetes Power will be of historical interest as no-one will know what Type 1 Diabetes is like.
