THE National Library of Australia has decided to “provide public access in perpetuity” to the Crocodile Prize website.
This means that the Library, through its Pandora Archive, will re-archive the website each year, recording changes and updates in full so its content will always be available.
The Library says it is currently putting together a Papua New Guinea collection in which the Crocodile Prize website will be incorporated.
The Library has traditionally collected items in print and is also committed to preserving electronic publications of lasting research or cultural value.
It will take the necessary preservation action to keep the Crocodile Prize website accessible even as there are hardware and software changes over time. PNG Attitude was first archived by the National Library in 2009 and has been re-archived each year since.
