Biblioteca Virtual WWW Preserving the web evolution: AUSTRALIA’S PANDORA All over the world, major Libraries and other national organizations are responding to this challenge – the potential loss of information – by collecting, preserving and giving permanent access to key websites for future generations. PANDORA, Australia’s Web Archive, is a project by National Library of Australia in conjunction with nine other participant organizations from all over Australia’s States, and it is actually a selective archive of significant Australian online publications and web sites considered to be of long-term research value. It is based at the National Library of Australia in Canberra. The National Library aims to archive titles of national significance, while the State Libraries aim to archive those of State and regional significance. Actually, the possibilities for Web archiving are two: Anyone in the world with an Internet connection can have access to the PANDORA Archive, and the system is very user-friendly and simple to surf.

The Children's University of Manchester Joining Pandora – Australia’s web archive The National Library of Australia aims to build a comprehensive collection of Australian publications to ensure that Australians have access to their documentary heritage now and in the future. The National Library is an amazing organisation. The theme promoted on the homepage says it all: Thinkers Wanted – Take a fresh look at the National Library. You should stop by and discover Australia’s Collections: Trove; Picture Australia, Pandora, Music Australia, Australia Dancing and Australian Newspapers. The one that I am excited about today is PANDORA – Australia’s Web Archive. PANDORA was set up by the Library in 1996 to enable the archiving and provision of long-term access to online Australian publications. Imagine my excitement to receive a request to include this blog in the PANDORA Archive. Access is then facilitated in two ways: via the Library’s online catalogue and via subject and title lists maintained on the PANDORA home page . I am delighted to be added to the collection!

A Digital Asset Sustainability and Preservation Cost Bibliography Was this what those early NDIIPP meetings were like? Finheads & Parrotheads by user Windridgedoc on Flickr. Back in the early days of the NDIIPP program we had a series of cross-cutting initiatives that we called “affinity groups.” These groups addressed areas of interest such as “collection and selection,” “technical architecture” and “rights and restrictions” that cut across all the different projects. I was interested in the work of the “economic sustainability” working group, and for no particular reason I started compiling a bibliography of books and articles that related to the long-term preservation of digital information in some way, figuring that it would come in handy at some point. The bibliography ranges broadly, from articles on “contingent valuation,” “ecosystem valuation” and the general “costs” of knowledge, to those that directly address the cost issues associated with digital preservation and stewardship.
