Progress on copying and digitisation orders – Canberra
Over the last few years, the National Archives has experienced a steady demand for copies of records. However from January to the end of October 2015, we received more than 27,496 orders for print and digital copies of records held in the Archives' Canberra office – an increase of approximately 6,186 (22%) compared with similar periods in previous years. The Centenary of Anzac, particularly around Anzac Day last year, contributed significantly to the increased demand.
Orders received 2013, 2014 and 2015
