******** PREVIOUS CORRESPONDENCE: Request for permission to archive the online publication: Thuppahi’s Blog

Dear Michael,

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.

PANDORA, Australia’s Web Archive, was set up by the Library in 1996 to enable the archiving and provision of long-term access to online Australian publications. Since then we have been identifying and archiving online publications that meet our collecting scope and priorities. Additional information about PANDORA and access to archived titles can be found on the Library’s server at:

We would like to include the Thuppahi’s blog in the PANDORA Archive. I would be grateful if you would let me know whether you are willing to permit us to do so, that is, grant us licence under the Copyright Act 1968, to copy your publications into the Archive and to provide online public access to them via the Internet. This means that you would grant the Library permission to retain your publications in the Archive and to provide public access to them in perpetuity. Further information on what granting a licence would entail can be found at:

If you are willing to grant us such a licence, please complete the short form at the end of this message and return it to me.

There are some benefits to you as a publisher in having your publications archived by the Library. If you grant us a copyright licence, the Library will take the necessary preservation action to keep your publications accessible as hardware and software changes over time. The Library will catalogue your publications 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 your publications among researchers using libraries.

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me, Jong Woo Kim, by email or by telephone on 02 6262 1568.  Should you find me difficult to contact for any reason, Russell Latham would also be happy to assist you.  Russell’s email address is and his phone number is 6262 1471

Yours sincerely

Jong Woo Kim

  1. Hello, There’s no doubt that your web site may be having internet browser compatibility problems.
    Whenever I take a look at your site in Safari,
    it looks fine however, if opening in Internet Explorer,
    it’s got some overlapping issues. I simply wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Aside from that, fantastic site!
