World Congress Link response from Yoland

Ballarat University contracted to provide this WC for ALARPM.  If they have ceased hosting the congress website and ALARPM/ALARA did not re host it, and the paper was only ever published online, then I imagine it is no longer published.
I do not know if past publication is sufficient for Jess if there are no copies available. (Past publication of a book out of print is presumably OK as copies are legally deposited in the State and Commonwealth libraries. But website publishing is I imagine not subject to the same requirements.)

I believe the organisers of the 2001 (was it 2001 not 2000?) are no longer members of ALARA in order for them to confirm whether there was a hard copy of proceedings published or a CD. (I'm sorry I cannot easily get my records out of storage to see if I can determine that myself.)  I'll cc to Stephen Kemmis and Susie in the hope they may remember.  Unfortunately I no longer have an email address for Sandra Billard at Ballarat University (if she is still there). Otherwise I'm afraid we may have come to a dead end for Jess.

Thanks for all your assistance with this assignment.  Sadly for Jess, the link has been deleted and all trace gone.

This is a problem for ALARA where it's history is hosted by a 3rd party.

I recall sighting previous WC material in an archive box and have suggested previously that this could be scanned and loaded onto the website.  Costs associated with this task could be prohibitive if I were paid to action however a volunteer may have the opportunity to do this for ALARA.

Hi Dianne,

 Thanks for your help. I have emailed Jess with the link and page reference.  It is good to have this reference back on the alara website.
