2014 WEB ARCHIVING HIGHLIGHTS

2014 was another busy year for John Oxley Library staff involved in web archiving. Each year we select several hundred Queensland websites and online publications to be preserved for future generations. These are captured by us and made publicly available in PANDORA - Australia’s web archive. PANDORA was established by the National Library of Australia in 1996. Today State Library of Queensland is one of 11 Australian institutions selecting and contributing content to the growing national archive. Some highlights and examples of our web archiving work for 2014 include:

These are just a few examples of contemporary Queensland web resources archived for the future. Our web archiving work will continue throughout 2015 with particular focus on Queensland politics and the forthcoming state election, and the ANZAC Centenary.  For more information about our web archiving activities or to suggest a site for archiving, visit the web archiving page on the State Library of Queensland website.
