The Danish Parliament decrees that a Danish internet archive be established as of July 1 2005. The archive is maintained by The Royal Library and The State and University Library, and is organised on the basis of the guidelines proposed by the two libraries together with CFI. Although access to the archive is still severely limited (by copyright legislation and the need to protect sensitive personal information), the preservation of a significant portion of Danish internet material represents a milestone for internet research and the Danish cultural inheritance. The archive is not at present open to the general public.
New publication in the CFI monograph series:
