More about the book and links to Maps and Pictures of 1890s Annandale
Digital history was made on 17 February 2016 as amendments to the legal deposit provisions in the Copyright Act 1968 came into effect, extending the legislation to capture the online publishing landscape...more

The Act requires that a copy of every 'book' first published in New South Wales be lodged within two months of publication.'Book' is defined in the Act as any book, newspaper, pamphlet, leaflet, music, map, chart or plan separately published and 'bound', sewed or stitched together'.
Legal deposit is also required with the National Library. " - http://www.nla.gov.au/legal-deposit/requirements-australia-wide (viewed 16 September 2011 13:38)

The digitisation of government material and its provision online is progressing well.
However, in the course of publishing a book 1890s Annandale: A short Walk (more about the book at http://ramin.com.au/walks/1890s-short-walk.shtml) recently, I experienced a diversity of responses to the reproduction and of images on websites, in E-Books and printed books.
An Action Plan for the Harmonisation of policies for the use of Digital images across agencies at all levels of government would be useful.
Online publication of commissioned heritage studies for government projects, as a matter of course, would also be useful.
The National Library of Australia has provided invaluable leadership in this space. Trove and its predecessor Newspapers online provide great insight into the past.
The NSW State Library’s release of images through Creative Commons License recently is also commendable and provided useful material in enhancing the Annandale to Circular Quay, Sydney walk with historic images. Walk is available here http://ramin.com.au/annandale/annandale-to-sydney.shtmlMarghanita
