Abstract (Document Summary)

Creators of a digital archive of Taliban-related documents are confident they will find a library to host it despite the British Library (BL) refusing to do so partly because the BL was afraid of breaching terrorism-related laws.

The library says there were copyright issues that would restrict access to the archive for researchers.

The BL says it received legal advice on the issue and decided against taking the archive.
