The Library set up Pandora, an Australian Web Archive, in 1996 'to enable the archiving and provision of long-term access to online Australian publications' that meet the National Library's 'collecting scope and priorities'. This Comicoz website-come-Blog that you are now reading has recently been invited to be included in the Pandora Archive, and I have informed the National Library today that we would be honoured to be so considered.
What this means is that a copy of this Comicoz web-site will be placed into the Pandora Archive and this will allow members of the public access to it 'in perpetuity'. Given that all illustrations that I have included on this Comicoz web-site have (usually*) been approved by the Copyright Holder, I doubt that there would be any Copyright Holder not willing to allow their illustration to be included in the Pandora Archive. IF there are, please contact me (so that the Copyright Material can be deleted). I should make this disclaimer now: That if any person or organisation who owns material subject to Copyright and not owned by Comicoz, and allows me permission to use any such illustration or photograph for the purpose of inclusion on this Comicoz web-site, then by inference they are allowing Pandora an extension of this right to preserve this material into the National Library of Australia's Archives.
* I have to say 'usually', as occasionally I have included an illustration or photograph with an unclear knowledge of who is the present Copyright Holder. For example, the older photographs of John Dixon when he was a young man. Anyone with an interest in learning more about Pandora's Web Archiving background, please click here.
I'm all for leaving this Comicoz web-site, a personal record of my (successful and not-so-successful) attempts at publishing and other historical comic-related thoughts, for Posterity when I leave this mortal coil. So, from 2013 I say: "Hullo to all Future Australian Comic Historians!"
