Day of Digital Archives – Oct 6 - highlighting web archiving of our summer of disasters

The Day of Digital Archives is an initiative from the USA to raise awareness of digital archives and an opportunity for those working with them to describe and collectively document what they do.  The John Oxley Library participated by highlighting the work that has been keeping our web archivists Maxine Fisher and Gina Tom busy this year – selecting and archiving websites and online publications related to last summer’s natural disasters.  These are organised into two collections: Queensland floods and  Tropical Cyclone Yasi.
