National Library of Australia to Digitize ‘Missing’ Copies of Australian Women’s Weekly

Posted by admin on Feb 25, 2010

The National Library of Australia is committed to preserving Australia’s most loved magazines – The Australian Women’s Weekly by digitizing the iconic magazine from its first issue on 10th June 1933 to when it changed into a monthly, on 15 December 1982, so it will be available online for future generations to enjoy.

Working together with the Women’s Weekly’s publisher, Australian Consolidated Press and the State Library of New South Wales, the National Library has called for the public’s help to find some missing issues to fill in gaps in the magazine’s library collection.

Director-General of the National Library, Jan Fullerton, said the digitization process combined cutting-edge technology with a 76-year-old Aussie icon.
