National Library of Australia

The National Library of Australia is responsible for collecting, preserving and making accessible a comprehensive collection of resources relating to Australia and the Australian people. The Library achieves this objective through innovative initiatives, such as the Trove discovery service, and through collaborative arrangements with other libraries and information providers. The Library has been a world leader in the collection and preservation of web resources establishing one of the first web archiving programs, PANDORA, in 1996. It now maintains a web archive of more than 500 TBs of data collected through selective, bulk-themed and domain harvesting methods. In 2004 the Library held one of the first international conferences focused on web archiving – ‘Archiving Web Resources: Issues for Cultural Heritage Institutions’ – and was a founding member of the IIPC and hosted the 2nd General Assembly in Canberra in 2008.
