Pandora to archive Transmission Lines

PANDORA is Australia’s Web Archive based at the National Library of Australia. They have been in touch requesting inclusion of Transmission lines 1955-1974  in the PANDORA Archive. This means the Library retains the project in the Archive and provides public access to it in perpetuity. It will be re-archived periodically to record significant additions and changes.

The Library will take the necessary preservation action to keep Transmission Lines accessible as hardware and software changes over time. The Library will catalogue it and add the records to the National Bibliographic Database (a database of catalogue records shared by over 5,200 Australian libraries), as well as to our own online catalogue. This will increase awareness of Transmission Lines among researchers using libraries. It also means these fragments of the story of EPT will be more readily found as part of Australia's history.
