Directory of Archives in Australia

WWW Edition of the Directory of Archives in Australia - NOW AVAILABLE!

In 1992 the Australian Society of Archivists published the _Directory of
Archives in Australia_, a useful guide to the location and holdings of over
450 archival repositories around Australia. For several months the
Australian Science Archives Project has been developing a WWW version,
updated from the 1992 edition, and with a number of new features. I'm
pleased to formally announce that the WWW edition of the Directory of
Archives in Australia is now ready for you to explore! Have a look at:



* Over 450 entries listing contact details, access conditions, facilities,
acquisition focus, major holdings and more, of repositories around the country.

* Over 300 entries updated from 1992 edition

* Email addresses and URLs included where available

* Browse either alphabetically or by location

* Search by concept/keyword, or limit your search to "Repository Name",
"Acquisition focus", and "Major holdings".


A totally new section providing quick access to Australian archival
resources on the WWW:

* Archives on the WWW - list of all repositories with WWW pages

* Finding Aids on the WWW - National, Institutional and Individual finding
aids are listed. Includes a consolidated list of over 250 finding aids to
individual collections - browse alphabetically, or (coming soon!) search
them all.

Please explore and let us know what you think. You can mail me directly, or
leave a message in the Vistors' Book. ENJOY!

Cheers, Tim
