National Library of Australia

The National Library of Australia have approached AppleUsers.org seeking permission to include the AppleUsers Spotlight magazine in their PANDORA Archive and we have just granted them permission.

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 cultural value.

PANDORA, Australia‚Äôs 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 the National Library have been identifying online publications and archiving those that they consider to have national significance. Additional information about PANDORA can be found on the Library’s server at: http://pandora.nla.gov.au/index.html.

The purpose of the PANDORA Archive
The purpose of the PANDORA Archive is to collect and provide long-term access to selected online publications and web sites that are about Australia, are by an Australian author on a subject of social, political, cultural, religious, scientific or economic significance and relevance to Australia, or are by an Australian author of recognised authority and make a contribution to international knowledge.

Discovering the contents of PANDORA
There are a number of different ways to find resources in PANDORA. All archived titles are catalogued and a record is included in the National Bibliographic Database (Libraries Australia), as well as in participants’ online catalogues. Access is provided via hotlinks in the catalogue record.

Access is also provided via a search facility and subject and title lists on the PANDORA Home Page.

Search services, such as Yahoo! and Google, index the Archive down to the level of individual titles, but not the contents of the titles.
