Adelaide Cyclists website is being archive for the future

March 18, 2010

I received a nice email in the week from the State Library of South Australia. People do notice what you are saying in online forums. Hopefully our thoughts will be there for the futures

Dear Adelaide Cyclists,

 The State Library of South Australia has entered a partnership with the National Library of Australia, and is responsible for identifying South Australian web sites for preservation and will archive the titles, using appropriate ‘gathering’ software, onto the National Library’s PANDORA Archive (Preserving and Accessing Networked Documentary Resources of Australia).

 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 and Australian State Libraries have traditionally collected items in print, but are also committed to preserving electronic publications of lasting cultural value.

 We would like to include in the PANDORA Archive and I would be grateful if you would let me know whether you are willing to permit us to do so, that is, grant us licence under the Copyright Act 1968, to copy your publication into the Archive and to provide public access to it via the Web.

 The PANDORA 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.

Additional information about PANDORA can be found on the Library’s server at:
