A really nice compliment.

Our website devoted to the study of Nuclear Power, has been selected for Digital Archiving. I received this really nice email asking for our permission.

Dear Professor Sevior

Request for permission to archive website

The National Library of Australia aims to build a comprehensive
collection of Australian publications to ensure that Australians have
access to their documentary heritage now and in the future. The Library
has traditionally collected items in print, but it is also committed to
preserving electronic publications of lasting cultural value.

PANDORA, Australia's Web Archive, was set up by the Library in 1996 to
enable the archiving and provision of long-term access to online
Australian publications. Since then we have been identifying online
publications and archiving those that we consider have national
significance. Additional information about PANDORA can be found on the
Library's server at:

We would like to include the website in the PANDORA
Archive and I would be grateful if you would let me know whether you are
willing to permit us to do so, that is, grant us a licence under the
Copyright Act 1968, to copy the publication into the Archive and to
provide public online access to it via the Internet. This means that
you would grant the Library permission to retain the publication in the
Archive and to provide public access to it in perpetuity.

Nice :-)
