The purpose of the Online Publication Policy is to ensure that increased access to the State archives collection through the digitisation, indexing, cataloguing and describing of material for online use and research does not unreasonably prejudice copyright holders or facilitate the unreasonable release of personal and cultural information. It provides a framework for
- the selection of material for online publication and
- responding to requests for the removal of online material
through consistent, clear and transparent processes that ensure the protection of copyright material and personal and cultural information.
