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.
Latest updates: On 13 October a substantial amount of content collected between 2005 and 2014 was added to AGWA. This content derives from whole .au domain harvests conducted over the past ten years by the NLA in collaboration with the Internet Archive. At the moment this new content is only searchable using URLs while we work on completing the full text indexing task.
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.
