National Library of Australia closes the digital door on PADI

The National Library of Australia announced through various mailing lists on September 1, 02010 that it is closing the digital door on its PADI subject gateway and associated mailing list padiforum-l. The library inaugurated PADI (Preserving Access to Digital Information) in 1997. The reasons for the change appear to be budgetary and technological pressures, as well as loss of outside interest in the utility of PADI.

According to the announcement,
A copy of the website has been archived in PANDORA, Australia’s Web Archive. The existing live website will remain available until the end of 2010; however no new resources have been added since the start of July 2010 and the existing links will not be actively managed. The archives of the padiforum-l list will continue to be available , however no new postings will be accepted from 30 September 2010.
