State Library is an active participant in PANDORA - Preserving and Accessing Networked Documentary Resources of Australia - a national archive of Australian online publications and websites. In 2004, PANDORA was placed on the Memory of the World Australian Register.
The State Library of Queensland has been a participant since 2002, enhancing the Queensland content of the archive. Our participation in PANDORA:
- ensures that Queensland websites are preserved for future generations
- provides selection guidelines which emphasise Queensland content and web material published and created in Queensland

PANDORA contains a wide range of selected online resources. These include publications from government agencies, academic institutions and other publishers; websites of numerous organisations and community groups; and sites covering various subject areas, interests and activities. Also included are political issues and election campaigns, festivals and events, and Australian personalities. Recent collecting initiatives include Floods, Queensland (Dec. 2010 - Jan. 2011); Tropical Cyclone Yasi; and 2012 Queensland State Elections.
New resources are added to PANDORA selectively, with an emphasis on collecting and preserving publications and websites considered authoritative, significant and with long-term research value. Your suggestions are important to help ensure that Queensland websites are archived for future generations.
The PANDORA Archive is hosted by the National Library of Australia. Access is available directly through the PANDORA homepage or from links in State Library of Queensland catalogue records.
