Congratulations to Judy O'Connell for her Heyjude: learning in an online world blog which has been selected for preservation in the PANDORA Archive.
PANDORA, Australia's Web Archive, was set up by the National Library of Australia in 1996 to enable the archiving and provision of long-term access to online Australian publications. It aims to build a selective collection of Australian web publications to ensure that Australians have access to their digital heritage now and in the future.
