Australian Government Web Archive
The Australian Government Web Archive (AGWA) is a web archiving initiative of the National Library of Australia which complements the Library's long established PANDORA Archive. The AGWA public interface was released in March 2014. The AGWA is a collection of Commonwealth Government websites. Initially content collected specifically for the collection commenced in June 2011. However earlier content sourced from other web archiving activities is progressively being added (see 'Latest updates' below). Selected older government web content along with some state and local government material may also be found at in the PANDORA Archive.
A new harvest of 879 seed URLs was conducted during the period 20-28 October adding 2 TBs of data or around 16 million new files to the AGWA. Indexing is complete and content is now available.
A harvest of federal ministers' websites was conducted on 15th to 17th September following the change in Prime Minister and prior to changes in ministerial responsibilities. This harvest has now been indexed and added to the collection.
Disclaimer: The AGWA is a specialised service that incorporates the delivery of historic snapshots of third-party content - that is, content not created by the NLA - as faithfully to the original as the technologies used allow. However, content in the archive may not comply with accessibility standards and some of the functionality and content of the original websites may be absent.
Browser note: The AGWA was developed using HTML5. Web browsers that do not support HTML5 will not provide full functional access to the archive. It is recommended that the AGWA should be viewed using current versions of Firefox, Chrome or Safari browsers. For more information see the About section.
