PANDORA - the National Archive

A little while ago, I recieved an email from the State Library of Queensland asking to include FoodMeUpScotty in the National Archives as a 'culturally significan contemporary online publication', copy of the letter below.

I was pretty stoked and agreed immediately - FoodMeUpScotty is now part our our contemporary cultral online heritate - how cool is that?

The State Library of Queensland aims to build a comprehensive collection of Queensland publications to ensure the availability of our documentary heritage both now and in the future.  State Library’s commitment to preserving the documentary heritage of our state extends to contemporary electronic resources, including online publications and websites of lasting significance.  This is achieved through our participation in PANDORA, Australia’s web archive.
PANDORA was established by the National Library of Australia in 1996 to enable the capture of and long-term access to Australian online publications.  We cooperate with the National Library in order to build and preserve a comprehensive collection of Australian online publications.  State Library’s brief is to enhance the Queensland presence in this national archive.
The FoodMeUpScotty website has been selected for inclusion in the  PANDORA Archive.  This means that you would grant the Library permission to retain your publication in the Archive and to provide public access to it in perpetuity.  

As such it’s now on display in the PANDORA archive at


Thanks very much for your comment, I really love and appreciate feedback and your thoughts
