Stephen Hawking´s website ´essential reading´ for researchers of the future. The website of Cambridge physicist Prof Stephen Hawking will be essential reading for researchers of the future, according to the British Library.
The list has been released to coincide with the introduction of a new law which allows the British Library and the UK’s five other legal deposit libraries – including Cambridge University Library – to collect all digital publications, such as blogs and websites.
Experts say this will avoid vital information being lost in a “digital black hole” when websites are deleted.
Prof Hawking, 71, uses his website to promote his books and update fans on latest news. He is the former Lucasian Professor of Mathematics.
