Scottish electronic archive plan

The National Library of Scotland has revealed a plan to create an archive of blogs, journals and e-mails written by leading Scots.

Curators insist these could become the manuscripts of the 21st century and have secured a £1.8 million grant for the Scottish Executive to set up a "digital repository".

Blogs and e-mails by leading cultural figures such as JK Rowling, Ian Rankin and Alasdair Gray are already being touted as prime exhibits for the scheme when it is launched in 2008.
