Australian Newspaper Plan - Annual Report 2011/2012

Australian Newspaper Plan Annual Report - Introduction

Purpose

This report describes progress with the Australian Newspaper Plan (ANPlan) in 2011/12. The achievements of ANPlan are evaluated against a set of Key Indicators and the goals set out in ANPlan’s Five Year Plan, July 2010 - June 2015 (Appendix A).

Background

ANPlan is a collaboration established by NSLA through which the Australian national, state and territory libraries are comprehensively collecting, preserving and providing access to Australian newspapers. The National Library of Australia (NLA) coordinates the Plan. The National Library of New Zealand (NLNZ) has observer status.

This is the fourth year that ANPlan libraries have reported against the set of Key Indicators developed and agreed by ANPlan libraries in June 2009; and the second year that they have reported on progress with the Five Year Plan (2010-2015).

Significant achievements for 2011/12 include:

  • seven significant newspaper finds (Key Indicator 1) and two major newspaper acquisition projects occurring within ANPlan libraries;
  • significant improvement in the percentages of Australian newspaper titles microfilmed (Key Indicator 3) with the percentages of filmed South Australian titles rising from 62% (last year) to 79% and from 62% (last year) to 80% for ACT newspapers;
  • a substantial increase in the number of digitised newspapers being made accessible on Trove (Key Indicator 4; Five Year Plan), including the first non-English community language newspapers; and no increase in the number of newspapers being digitised outside the Australian Newspapers Digitisation Program (ANDP) framework;
  • a significant quantity of first generation newspaper microfilm on acetate was replaced this year with polyester film (747 reels; Key Indicator 5);
  • for the first year, all ANPlan libraries report being able to store their first generation newspaper microfilm masters under ideal conditions (Key Indicator 7);
  • six ANPlan libraries confirm that 100% of their first generation newspaper microfilm masters are catalogued according to the guidelines which were developed in consultation with all ANPlan libraries in 2006. Last year, only three libraries reported 100% of their first generation newspaper microfilm masters catalogued in this way. Five libraries report that all their microfilm is catalogued in this way (Key Indicators 10 & 11, Five Year Plan);
  • continued outreach to public libraries about using and contributing to digitised newspapers on Trove (Five Year Plan);
  • maintaining public awareness of the role of libraries in collecting, preserving and providing access to newspapers through a range of publicity strategies including publicity about newly digitised newspapers and the ongoing search and rescue campaign to locate missing Australian newspapers (Five Year Plan).

In 2011/12 some progress was made in identifying and finding missing Australian newspapers. Significant progress was reported with preserving Australian newspapers through microfilming. Over the past year, the estimated percentage of newspaper titles microfilmed has risen most markedly for South Australian (from 62% to 79%) and ACT (from 62% to 80%) newspapers, with a small increase in NSW (from 96.8% to 97%) newspapers. This is the first year that data has been made available for Victorian newspapers. Over 2011/12, a significant amount of activity has been directed towards replacing first generation newspaper acetate masters with polyester (State Library of Western Australia (SLWA) 680 reels; State Library of Victoria (SLV) 67 reels).

The number of newspapers which are being made accessible through Trove has more than doubled since last year (from 138 to 282) with a significant number being digitised through the ANDP’s ‘contributor model’. Five of the new titles are community language newspapers. Encouragingly, the total number of newspapers which have been digitised, but are not available through Trove, has not increased, indicating that the ANPlan libraries’ endeavours to publicise the benefits of contributing to the ANDP have been successful.

There have been no reported changes in ANPlan libraries’ ability to store hard copy newspapers, with seven of the nine libraries reporting that they are able to store all the newspapers which they hold primary responsibility for under ANPlan optimally. This is the first year that all ANPlan libraries have reported being able to store all their first generation newspaper microfilm masters under ideal environmental conditions for preserving permanent access. Reported storage conditions do vary, however. While the vast majority of microfilm masters for Australian newspapers are owned by ANPlan libraries, the locations of those which are not owned by ANPlan libraries have still not consistently been recorded on the National Bibliographic Database (NBD).

There have been no reported changes with cataloguing hard copy newspaper titles to the NBD with seven out of nine libraries reporting catalogue records for all newspapers published in their state/territory; six of these libraries report the inclusion of detailed and up-to-date holdings information. Over the last year, there has been a significant improvement in the cataloguing of first generation microfilm masters with six ANPlan libraries confirming that all of their first generation newspaper microfilm masters are catalogued according to the current guidelines (last year only three libraries reported this). For the State Library of Tasmania (SLT) and Northern Territory Library (NTL), this is an increase from 0% and 15%, respectively, reported last year. This is the first year that the SLV has reported for this Key Indicator. Improvements were also reported for cataloguing all generations of newspaper microfilm onto the NBD, with five libraries reporting that all microfilm was catalogued in this way. While all digitised newspapers delivered through Trove are catalogued on the NBD according to the current guidelines, digitised newspapers which are not delivered through Trove remain largely uncatalogued.

ANPlan libraries continue to engage with public libraries and the general public about ANDP, missing newspapers and the libraries’ role in collecting, preserving and providing access to newspapers.

Some ANPlan libraries are actively pursuing activities relating to the collection of digital pre-press electronic copies of newspapers.

Australian Newspaper Plan Annual Report - Collecting

Key Indicator 1: Newspapers found

ANPlan libraries report 7 significant newspaper finds in 2011/12. These are listed in Appendix B.

Over 2011/12, a major newspaper related project was undertaken at the State Library of Queensland (SLQ) when the Queensland Parliamentary Library (QPL) donated 110 linear metres of Queensland newspapers to SLQ. The collection, containing 22 titles, in various states of condition and completeness, was assessed with a focus on finding issues missing from the SLQ collection and/or replacing bound SLQ volumes with the QPL equivalent if in better condition. Sixty-six percent of the volumes were integrated into the SLQ collection over eight months.

In Tasmania, the Mercury moved from its premises in Macquarie Street to smaller offices in Salamanca resulting in the closure of its library. Staff from the Tasmanian Archive and Heritage Office (TAHO) worked with the Mercury's library staff during early 2012 to identify material for transfer to TAHO. This transfer—which included card indexes, subject files, and original photographs as well as selected hard copy newspapers—was completed in July 2012.

The titles of newspapers which are known to be missing or have missing portions are published on ANPlan’s website.

ANPlan libraries reported 8 new newspapers commencing publication from July 2011 to June 2012 (this included 3 changed titles); and 4 newspapers ceasing publication. The titles of these newspapers are given in Appendix C.



[1] Missing newspapers are ones which are missing from all ANPlan libraries both in hard copy and microfilm format.

[2] A ‘significant’ portion is not generally defined by the amount of material which is missing but by its significance to the total collection. The SLNSW has reported titles which have more than 20 missing years.

[3] Newspapers which are national in scope, coverage and distribution which the National Library of Australia has assumed responsibility for are: Australian, Australian Financial Review, National Times, Nation Review and Independent Monthly.

Untitled DocumenKey Indicator 3: Microfilming

The percentage of their state/territory’s hard copy newspaper titles which ANPlan libraries estimate they have been able to microfilm ranges from 45 to 97% across those states/territories reporting. Over the past year, this estimated percentage has risen most markedly for SA (from 62 to 79%) and ACT (from 62 to 80%) newspapers, with a small increase reported for NSW newspapers. This is the first year that data has been collected for Victorian newspapers. The percentage of these microfilmed newspapers which have been filmed to current preservation standards[1] is very high for most states and territories. The standard of filming of the national newspapers is not known (because portions were completed before 1985 when current standards were widely adopted); however, a project to investigate the standard of microfilming is planned for 2012/13.

A list of Australian newspaper titles microfilmed in 2011/12 is given in Appendix D.

Five Year Plan reporting: Of the 89 ‘at risk’ newspapers listed in the Five Year Plan (2010-2015; Appendix A), 87 have been microfilmed, one has been filmed for part of the designated date range and one is yet to be filmed.

Key Indicator 4: Digitisation

The number of digitised newspapers which are being made accessible through Trove has been steadily growing, reaching 282 at the end of June 2012. A comparison of the total number of newspapers accessible through Trove in June 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 is shown graphically below.

Titles of all Australian newspapers known to be digitised at 30 June 2012 are given in Appendices E (titles accessible through Trove) and F (titles known to be digitised but not available through Trove). Over 2011/12, the total number of newspapers which have been digitised, but are not available through Trove, is 50 (last year: 52).[2]

This year, the NLA undertook a short project which aimed to examine the issues associated with digitising community language newspapers. The following newspapers, amounting to approximately 12,000 pages, were delivered through Trove: Adelaider Deutsche Zeitung (1851 and 1860-62); Suedaustralische Zeitung/ Südaustralische Zeitung (1850-1851); Süd-Australische Zeitung (1860-1874); Il Giornale Italiano(1932-1940); and Meie Kodu(1949-1954). A report analysing the issues, considerations and specifications for digitisation of community language newspapers was prepared and recommendations for future work in this area were developed.

Five year plan reporting: A goal of the current Five Year Plan (Appendix A) is to contribute all digitised newspaper content to the ANDP as outlined in the NLA’s Contributor Guidelines. That the number of newspapers digitised outside this framework has not increased indicates the success of ANPlan libraries’ endeavours to communicate the benefits of digitising newspapers through the ANDP.

Another goal of the current Five Year Plan is to provide and maintain digital access to those titles and corresponding date ranges listed in the ANDP, Phase 1. Of the 107 titles listed, 102 have been completed and the other five will be investigated further with a view to digitisation in the near future.

[2] Three newspapers previously listed, the Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Gazette and the Nambour Chronicle have now been made available through Trove; the Geelong Times has recently been digitised outside the ANDP framework.

Australian Newspaper Plan Annual Report - Acetate replacement

Key Indicator 5: Replacing acetate microfilm

Replacing unstable acetate microfilm with polyester film is one of the strategies which ANPlan libraries have been using to preserve access to their newspaper collections. A number of ANPlan libraries have now completed acetate duplication projects for their first generation newspaper microform collections or hold no acetate master microfilm. These are NTL, State Library of New South Wales (SLNSW), State Library of South Australia (SLSA) and SLT. The SLWA replaced 680 reels of acetate first generation acetate masters in 2011/12 and the SLV replaced 67 reels. The titles of these reels are given in Appendix G. The SLQ and NLA will undertake an audit of masters in 2012/13 to confirm that no acetate masters are held.

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.

Key Indicator 9: Cataloguing hard copy newspaper titles

Most Australian newspapers (hard copy) are accessible through the NBD and most libraries report that catalogue records for newspapers published in their state/territory include detailed and up-to-date holdings information.[1] This data is largely unchanged from last year. Libraries reported only on the newspapers which they hold primary responsibility for under ANPlan.

Key Indicator 10: Cataloguing 1st generation microfilm masters

Six ANPlan libraries confirm that 100% of their first generation newspaper microfilm masters are catalogued according to the guidelines[2] which were developed in consultation with all ANPlan libraries in 2006. For the SLT and NTL, this is an increase from 0% and 15% reported last year. This is the first year that the SLV has reported for this Key Indicator. The SLNSW reports an increase from 65% to 70% first generation microfilm masters catalogued according to the guidelines.

Key Indicator 11: Cataloguing microfilm

The extent to which ANPlan libraries have been able to adopt the revised guidelines for all microfilmed titles (including all generations of microfilm) and with holdings attached to the correct format and generation varies across the ANPlan libraries.[3] Libraries have again reported only on newspaper titles which they hold primary responsibility for under ANPlan.

Five year plan reporting: A goal of the current Five Year Plan is to ensure that all generations of newspaper microfilm titles which ANPlan libraries hold responsibility for are catalogued onto the NBD, according to the microform cataloguing guidelines developed by ANPlan libraries in 2006, with holdings attached to the correct format and generation. Significant progress has been made over 2011/12, with five libraries (NLA, NTL, SLSA, SLT and SLWA) now reporting that their microfilm is catalogued in this way. For the SLT and NTL, this is an increase from 0% and 15%, respectively, reported last year. The SLNSW reports an increase from 65% to 70% of all generations of microfilm catalogued according to the guidelines.

Another goal of the Five Year Plan is to ensure that all digitised newspapers are catalogued onto the NBD, according to Libraries Australia's Guidelines for Cataloguing Remote Electronic Resources. The NLA reports that all completed digitised newspapers in Trove have a catalogue record of this type. Digitised newspapers which are not delivered through Trove remain largely uncatalogued.

Australian Newspaper Plan Annual Report - Five year plan reporting

Investigation of the issues associated with collecting pre-press electronic versions of Australian newspapers as a preservation/access strategy including the cost-effectiveness of this strategy.

The SLSA developed a funding bid, Stop Press! Collaborating with newspaper publishers to preserve access to South Australia's contemporary newspapers in the digital age that was forwarded to SLSA's lead agency in October 2011. While funding has not been forthcoming to date, the exercise raised awareness and support for this activity within SLSA and the Library’s Reformatting Coordinator, Lindy Bohrnsen, will visit Singapore in August 2012 to view and evaluate competing brands of Microfilm Archive Writers being used in cultural institutions.

The SLQ met with a major Queensland newspaper publisher to discuss opportunities for the deposit of pre-press digital newspapers. A business case, including a benefits and cost benefit analysis, is now being developed to clarify a proposal to the publisher.

Working through networks with public libraries to raise awareness of and knowledge about ANPlan, including how to contribute to the ANDP. Facilitating contributions from local libraries and organisations to the service, as outlined in the Contributor Guidelines and raising awareness of funding strategies that may be available for newspaper digitisation projects.

The NLA continues to provide updates on newspaper titles which have been newly digitised through the ANDP to various types of libraries including public and university libraries, historical societies, museums, family history and local studies groups via the ANPlan libraries’ networks and other channels of distribution. These updates identify contributed titles and contributors.

Many of the ANPlan libraries continue to provide vital support for ANPlan and the ANDP by liaising, especially with their public libraries, on newspaper digitisation enquiries and supporting the program by providing advice and assistance to contributors. The SLNSW has provided advice and support to Bourke, Gilgandra, Kiama and Orange public libraries which received Country Libraries Fund grants for newspaper digitisation.

Meetings

ANPlan meetings were held in November 2011 and in June 2012 (by teleconference).

Publicity

General publicity about ANPlan libraries’ role in collecting, preserving and providing access to newspapers has been through the libraries’ distribution of publicity material, talks, presentations, media releases, interviews and reports.

In addition to providing email updates on newly digitised newspaper titles through a variety of distribution channels, the NLA also contributes items about newspapers recently added to Trove through the Library’s monthly eNews.

In association with Communications and Marketing at the NLA, the following publicity and communication activities were undertaken regarding the digitisation of community language newspapers:

  • a snippet about the community language newspapers was included in the Library's June eNews;
  • a media release from the NLA was issued on 15 June and sent to some IT journalists, SBS and other contacts. Wan Wong attended interviews with ABC and SBS. Numerous mentions and re-tweets from the original NLA tweet were recorded;
  • a news item about community language newspapers was included on the Library's home page;
  • publicity was also delivered via email through the ANPlan network, to public, university and other libraries, and museum, family history, historical society and local history groups as well as selected multicultural groups and through the Trove network;
  • correspondence with two Flinders university academics and the Archivist at Lutheran Archives in South Australia (contacts provided by the SLSA) regarding the German-language newspapers.

The NLA’s publicity and communication activities resulted in:

  • a story in the Media section of The Australian Monday 18 June;
  • mentions on ABC Radio bulletins over the weekend of 16-17 June;
  • an SBS interview podcast.

 

Other publicity included:

At the SLNSW, the Lifelong Learning Workshop, 'Reading yesterday's news' is regularly run to provide clients with hands-on research skills on searching newspapers in the SLNSW catalogue and in Trove. Jerelynn Brown’s paper, 'Tabloids in the State Library of NSW collection: a reflection of life in Australia', was published in the Australian journal of communication, Vol. 38 (2) 2011.

The Dawn: a journal for Australian women (1888-1905) from the Library’s collection was digitised and made available via Trove to celebrate International Women’s Day on 8 March 2012.

Search and rescure campaign

The NLA and other ANPlan libraries continue to receive enquiries and offers of newspaper material from members of the public.

The 2011-12 Marketing strategy for ANPlan at the SLSA focused on missing newspapers, and in particular early South Australian newspapers published in languages other than English. The key activity was a presentation by Professor Dr.  George Karanakis (Charles Sturt University). This presentation was  a collaboration between SLSA and the Adelaide Hellenic Cultural Festival – Odyssey Festival (5-22 October 2011). The following promotional activities supported the presentation on 18 October at the Olympic Hall in Adelaide:

  • media release: distributed through all SA media channels state-wide;
  • flyer: produced as hand-out at the presentation;
  • event details with supporting information on the significance of the Oceanis Newspaper and early history of the Greek Press and publishing in SA were published in the Odyssey Festival official program;
  • Odyssey Festival program distributed throughout festivals and Greek Community channels;
  • supporting Presentation: Director of SLSA Alan Smith on the value of newspaper preservation.

The SLQ promotes Search and rescue via the Local Studies Discussion list set up to communicate with the local studies community in libraries in Queensland. Posters and flyers requesting the donation of old and significant newspapers continue to be displayed.

The NTL continues to display posters and flyers requesting the donation of historic newspapers. The Historical Society of the Northern Territory included the Missing newspapers flyer in their newsletter.

Recommendations

That the report be noted.

Five Year Plan July 2010 - June 2015

Established in the early 1990s, the Australian Newspaper Plan (ANPlan) aims to ensure that newspapers published in Australia are collected and preserved for permanent access.

ANPlan is a cooperative initiative of National and State Libraries Australasia (NSLA). It relies on collaboration between Australia's national, state and territory libraries. The National Library of New Zealand has observer status.

Under ANPlan, primary responsibility for a newspaper rests with the ANPlan library in the state or territory of the newspaper's origin. The National Library of Australia shares responsibility for ACT newspapers with the ACT Heritage Library (ACTHL) and has assumed responsibility for a number of newspapers that are national in scope, coverage and distribution.[1]

The Australian partners report to NSLA annually against a set of Key Indicators in the areas of collecting, preserving and providing access to newspapers. ANPlan’s second Five Year Plan (2010-1015) is intended to provide impetus to ANPlan libraries’ endeavours in those areas which are not currently well met. It is also intended to provide focus to current efforts to address certain key ‘at risk’ newspapers and to ANPlan libraries’ outreach activities.

A minor review was undertaken in early 2013 and actions related to digital collecting were added.

Collect

ANPlan libraries will continue to enlist the help of community groups and the public in finding missing newspapers. The following goal has been identified for July 2010 – June 2015:

1. To identify all Australian newspapers which are entirely missing, in any format, from the national collection held within the ANPlan libraries, or for which substantial portions are missing.

2. To investigate the technical and access issues associated with collecting the following two categories of Australian digital newspapers, for both their full-text content and the “look-and-feel”:

a.       digital newspapers which are not associated with a printed version (see Appendix 2). This action will likely involve a collaboration with web archiving staff in each of the ANPlan libraries;

b.      pre-press digital files used for production of hard copy newspapers;

and keeping a ‘watching brief’ on those categories of Australian digital newspapers and news material which are not currently being addressed through ANPlan.

Preserve

For some ANPlan libraries, preservation microfilming remains a key strategy for preserving permanent access to Australian newspapers. ANPlan libraries will continue to preserve their newspaper collections through preservation microfilming, re-filming poorly filmed material, copying from acetate microfilm to stable polyester microfilm, computer output microfilming as well as through digitisation.

ANPlan libraries will aim to store all newspapers (hard copy and microform masters) under optimal physical and environmental conditions to preserve ongoing access and take steps to ensure permanent access to those newspapers whose microfilm preservation masters are not currently owned by the ANPlan libraries responsible for these titles (e.g. by ensuring that there are catalogue records for these titles or by negotiating transfer of custody).

The following preservation goals have been identified for July 2010 – June 2015:

3. To preserve, for permanent access, the significant ‘at risk’ newspapers listed (in Appendix 4 of this document).

4. To develop guidelines for the storage of newspapers which outline the impact of environmental conditions on the longevity of newspapers and which include critical factors which influence libraries’ ability to provide permanent access to newspapers.

5. To develop guidelines and standards for digitising newspapers for preservation purposes and to influence the development and promote the adoption of best practice guidelines in digital preservation to ensure  permanent access to digitised and digital newspapers.

Access

To ensure that Australian newspapers are universally accessible, ANPlan libraries will endeavour to catalogue all newspapers (hard copy, all generations of microfilm and digitised) onto the national bibliographic database, including detailed and up-to-date holdings information.

The following goals relating to newspaper access have been identified for July 2010 – June 2015:

6. To ensure that all generations of newspaper microfilm titles which ANPlan libraries hold responsibility for are catalogued onto the national bibliographic database, according to the microform cataloguing guidelines developed by ANPlan libraries in 2006, with holdings attached to the correct format and generation.

7. To ensure that all digitised newspapers are catalogued onto the national bibliographic database, according to the Guidelines for Cataloguing Remote Electronic Resources.

8. To provide and maintain digital access to those titles and corresponding date ranges listed in the Australian Newspapers Digitisation Program, Phase 1.

9. To contribute all digitised newspaper content to the Australian newspapers service as outlined in the National Library’s Contributor Guidelines.

Outreach

ANPlan libraries will continue to participate, as they are able, to raise awareness in the community of the role of libraries in collecting, preserving and providing access to newspapers.

The following goal relating to outreach has been identified for July 2010 – June 2015:

10. ANPlan libraries will work through their networks with public libraries to raise awareness of and knowledge about the national infrastructure which exists for collecting, preserving and providing access to Australian newspapers including how to contribute to and use the Australian newspapers service. ANPlan libraries will play a key role in facilitating contributions from local libraries and organisations to the service, as outlined in the Australian newspapers service Contributor Guidelines, and in raising awareness of funding strategies that may be available for newspaper digitisation projects.

 APPENDIX 3: DEFINITION OF AN 'AT RISK' NEWSPAPER

 A newspaper which has not been microfilmed may be considered to be ‘at risk’ if the hardcopy:

  • is not held within an ANPlan library
  • is in poor condition at risk of losing information; and
  • is a unique set or all other sets are in the same condition;
  • is heavily used; or
  • is inadequately stored.

If the newspaper title has been microfilmed and the microfilm:

  • is incomplete,
  • is of poor quality,
  • is subject to deterioration – e.g. on acetate,
  • does not exist on 3 generations,
  • master is not stored optimally – e.g. is not held by an ANPlan library,

the newspaper may also be considered to be ‘at risk’.

Maitland Mail (20 Dec. 1909). In November 2011 country newspaper historian Kym Tilbrook alerted Anthony Laube to a framed copy of page 1 of Vol. 1 No. 2 (20 December 1909) edition of the Maitland Mail on display in the office of the current Yorke Peninsula Country Times. This title had been on the missing list of the SLSA for many years. Following a letter from Beth Robertson, SLSA, about ANPlan, the publisher's staff tracked down a photocopy of all four pages of the edition held by the local branch of the National Trust, which kindly lent it to SLSA for microfilming after determining that there was no record of who held the original.

Myall Coast nota (1997-1999) loaned to the SLNSW for filming from the Tea Gardens Hawks Nest Family Research Group.
