British Library

The British Library is the biggest public structure built in the UK during the 20th century, built in 1973.

From the Magna Carta to the Lindisfarne Gospels, the British Library is a living document of the British publishing industry, receiving a copy of every publication produced within the UK.

Millions of new items are added each year, including manuscripts, newspapers, magazines, prints, drawings, much of which has now been transferred into digital format for online reading. It also features a Sound Archive that retains sound recordings stretching back to the 19th century, through to modern day CD’s and DVD’s.
