Now Collected by the National Library of Australia

"Charlie B" by fellow Betty, Kerry Baylor

My photographic collective, the Old Spool Betties, is abuzz after....

The National Library of Australia asked if they can add us to their collection!

Specifically, we're now part of the Library's PANDORA collection, which is an archive of online publications that are considered to be of "national significance" and "lasting cultural value".

What this essentially means is that the Betties' blog will be regularly archived and preserved, even as technology changes over time, so that people anywhere can have "access to it in perpetuity" — that is, forever.

The Betties have officially made it!

For those who don't know, we're a collective of seven photographic artists living in and around Canberra, the capital city of Australia.
