BBC Provides Update on the Aftermath of the British Library Cyberattack
Noor Nanji writes the following in “British Library Starts Restoring Services Online After Hack” for the BBC:
The British Library’s main catalogue, with more than 36 million records, is returning online on [Jan. 15, 2024] after last year’s cyber attack.
It is the first significant step in the complete restoration of services for those using the UK’s largest library.
But the catalogue will just be available in a ‘read-only’ format. …
The hack on 31 October resulted in the British Library’s website being down for almost a month. …
[R]eaders will also be provided with access to most of the library’s key special collections, including the archives, manuscripts and other unique items but will need to come in person to consult offline versions of specialist catalogues.
