Pandora

Heard of Pandora? Australia’s Virtual Library? Iconophilia is now being archived as we go… Here’s what they say:

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 Library has traditionally collected items in print, but it is also committed to preserving electronic publications of lasting research or cultural value. PANDORA, Australia’s Web Archive, was set up by the Library in 1996 to enable the archiving and provision of long-term access to online Australian publications.   Since then we have been identifying online publications and archiving those that we consider have national significance.
