The Cooroy website has just been preserved by the State Library of Queensland on PANDORA, a digital archive dedicated to the preservation of Australian online electronic publications of national significance.
The State Library of Queensland is one of seven co-contributors to PANDORA, which stands for Preserving and Accessing Networked Documentary Resources of Australia.
The Archive contains only a small proportion of the Australian web domains, estimated at less than one per cent and only online publications deemed to be of national significance are chosen.
“This is a huge recognition for Cooroy, that our website is significant enough to preserve. All of the information on the website is about our town and that will now be in the national archives,” said Cooroy Chamber of Commerce President, Danielle Taylor.
“The Cooroy Chamber of Commerce started the Cooroy website 10 years ago as a community initiative and it has always been very popular. The site has undergone several transformations over the years to become the fantastic resource that it is today. To be chosen to be included is an honour and a testament to all the hard work that has gone into this website.”
The Cooroy website gets approximately 10,000 visits per month with the most popular sections being the calendar, business directory and news pages.
