Neither cambridge, london or oxford are being
actively used or
maintained by anyone, as far as I know, for many years, so it's
probably time I (not-so?)-gracefully turn them all off.
I have a feeling I’ve made
this plea here before, but speaking as a
local historian, I don’t think these websites should just be deleted.
Did you know
that the British Library has a programme for archiving
websites? Provided that they are primarily original-content-driven then they
want to archive even personal sites (they're archiving my cricket blog
<https://larvalstageumpire.sport.blog/>, for example), so Openguides sites
would certainly qualify. They may already be aware of the OG sites, but if
not they're happy to take nominations from the public for sites to archive.
This is very interesting,
although it didn't strike me as being the
most accessible set of sites (quite a lot of clicking around to find
content that was actually available to the public). I was going to
as being good enough.
