The UK Curator's 100 Websites

To mark the start of a cooperative project "to archive the entire UK web, along with e-journals, e-books and other formats" curators and other experts from the British Library, the National Library of Scotland, the National Library of Wales, Bodleian Libraries, Cambridge University Library and Trinity College Dublin have chosen the 100 Websites which they judge will be essential reading for future generations researching our life and times in 2013.
The Curators' 100 is an interesting mix, sites familiar to most genealogists like http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/, sites more widely familiar like http://www.ebay.co.uk/ , and sites which reflect the quirks of the British such as http://www.unstbusshelter.shetland.co.uk/.

Information on a parallel Canadian initiative from Library and Archives Canada is here.
