Since 1998, the Library has been collecting websites, including government websites, using the National Library of Australia’s Pandora web archiving system. Pandora is used by multiple national and state collecting organisations to selectively collect online publications and websites relating to Australia and Australians. Among the latest collections are the Kaldor Public Art Projects website which includes Jonathon Jones' vast sculptural installation stretching across 20,000 square-metres of the Royal Botanic Garden. Some of the New South Wales based collections that have been archived include: NSW soccer websites; NSW Local Government Councils, and New South Wales Rail Heritage.
Since 2014, the Library has also used the Internet Archive’s Archive-It to undertake whole of domain nsw.gov.au harvests. This collection includes material published on NSW Government websites under the *.nsw.gov.au domain and links to other government departments in accordance with the Administrative Arrangements Orders for relevant departments and government agencies. The Library has also collected local government websites before and after recent changes following the amalgamations of some councils. Both collections are available to browse here.
