> I would like to announce some major additions to the National Library
> of Australia's PADI (Preserving Access to Digital Information) website
> The new additions include a web archiving topic page and the
> development of a series of trails.
> Web archiving topic page -
> The purpose of the web archiving topic page
> http://www.nla.gov.au/padi/topics/92.html is to serve as an
> introduction to some of the major archiving initiatives that have been
> established by national libraries around the world to preserve their
> country's Web heritage. The main models that have emerged for
> archiving Web content are listed, together with descriptive
> 'snapshots' of the key projects and collaborative initiatives.Links
> are also provided to PADI resources which provide further discussion
> of Web archiving issues.
> Trails -
> A series of trails http://www.nla.gov.au/padi/trails/ have been
> developed to introduce the beginner both to digital preservation and
> the PADI website. The trails consist of general background
> information, as well as links to resources from the PADI database.
> These resources have been chosen for their broad coverage and
> easy-to-read content of relevant topics. The trails centre on the main
> areas considered essential in gaining a basic understanding of digital
> preservation issues. They include background information in the form
> of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), as well as links to guides,
> bibliographies, articles, online tutorials and further explanatory
> information from our PADI database.
> The trails include a beginners trail, removable storage media trail,
> metadata and preservation metadata trail, data preservation management
> trail, digital preservation methods trail and a web archiving trail.
> Please feel free to explore the trails. You can follow the icon on the
> homepage http://www.nla.gov.au/padi/index.html or go straight to the
> trails via this link http://www.nla.gov.au/padi/trails/.
> Any feedback on either of the additions are most welcome and can be
> sent to padi at nla.gov.au
