The (internet) times are changing!

As you'll see my blog posts are becoming fewer and fewer as I'm fine-tuning!  I'll now be posting more on our Facebook page and on our newly-created "What's New" page on our website.

As a matter of interest a while ago I was delighted to have been approached by the State Library of Queensland:-
Request permission to archive the following website:
Daintree Valley Haven [blog] website:
The State Library of Queensland aims to build a comprehensive collection of Queensland publications to ensure the availability of our documentary heritage both now and in the future. State Library’s commitment to preserving the documentary heritage of our state extends to contemporary electronic resources, including online publications and websites of lasting significance. This is achieved through our participation in PANDORA, Australia’s web archive.
PANDORA was established by the National Library of Australia in 1996 to enable the capture of and long-term access to Australian online publications. We cooperate with the National Library in order to build and preserve a comprehensive collection of Australian online publications. State Library’s brief is to enhance the Queensland presence in this national archive.
Your website has been selected for inclusion 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 licence under the Copyright Act 1968 to copy your publication into the Archive and to provide public online access to a copy of it via the Internet. This means that you would grant the Library permission to retain a copy of your publication in the Archive and to provide public access to this copy in perpetuity.
 (I agreed of course!)

From now on you will find the most up-to-date news about our wildlife and daily happenings at:-

Hope to see you there!
