I received a lovely email request today:
Request for permission to archive the online publication Tenant Magazine
The State Library of Victoria (in partnership with the National Library of Australia) aims to build a comprehensive collection of Australian publications to ensure that Australians have access to their documentary heritage now and in the future.
The Library has traditionally collected items in print, but it is also committed to preserving electronic publications of lasting cultural value.
Since then we have been identifying online publications and archiving those that we consider have national significance.
We would like to include the online publication Tenant Magazine in the PANDORA Archive and I would be grateful if you would let me know whether you are willing to permit us to do so, that is, grant us a licence under the Copyright Act 1968, to copy your publication into the Archive and to provide public online access to it via the Web.
What a thrill!
When I told my family, my mum wrote “You’re too young to be in an archive!”.
Thanks to everyone who has supported this blog: from the talented and fascinating interviewees, to the proofers (long may you reign) to the readers and to my loyal cheer squad – you know who you are.
