Key Indicator 6: Storing hard copy newspapers

ANPlan libraries are generally able to store the hard copy newspapers which they hold primary responsibility for under ANPlan under environmental conditions which they consider to be optimal. Two libraries report that they are unable to store 100% of their newspapers ideally. This is identical to responses these libraries gave last year. The environmental conditions under which newspapers are stored are reported in the table beneath the graph. These conditions vary somewhat with reported storage temperatures ranging from 15±2 °C to 23±2 °C and humidity ranging from 35±5 to 50±10 %RH. All data refers to newspapers which libraries hold primary responsibility for under ANPlan—newspapers published in their state/territory.

Key Indicator 7: Storing 1st generation microfilm masters

All ANPlan libraries are able to store all of their first generation newspaper microfilm masters under environmental conditions which they consider to be optimal to preserve permanent access. However, there are differences between these reported conditions, which are listed in the table beneath the graph below, with temperatures ranging from 8±1 °C to17±2 °C and humidity ranging from 32-35 to 50±5 %RH. Six libraries (NLA, NTL, SLNSW, SLSA, SLV and SLWA) store preservation masters in the NLA’s cold store. All data refers to the newspaper titles which libraries hold primary responsibility for under ANPlan.

Key Indicator 8: Control of microfilm masters

The vast majority of Australian newspaper microfilm masters are owned by ANPlan libraries.

The SLSA reports that it owns masters for all microfilmed titles from South Australia and the NLA reports that it owns masters for all microfilmed titles from the ACT.

Both the SLWA and NTL report not owning all masters for 1 title.[19] Both these titles are catalogued on the NBD with the location of masters recorded.

The NLA reports that it does not own the complete set of masters for four of the five national titles. All of these titles have been catalogued onto the NBD with the location of the masters recorded.

The SLNSW identifies approximately 120 titles with a portion of the masters owned by the University of New England which will be acquired by the SLNSW. The SLQ estimates that masters for six Queensland titles[20] are not owned by the SLQ. The SLT has identified three Tasmanian titles which it does not own the microfilm masters for. These titles have not been catalogued onto the NBD.

No data for this Key Indicator was available from the SLV.
