The federal government has approved a $67.7m increase in funding for the National Archives of Australia to preserve and digitise its most at-risk records, including documents, photos, maps and film recordings. This had been recommended by former senior public servant David Tune, although the government will provide the additional funding over four years rather than seven. A group of prominent Australians recently signed an open letter to Prime Minister Scott Morrison urging the government to increase the National Archives’ funding.
