Future Proof LogoProtecting our digital future

"A place for people to learn more about the NSW Government digital recordkeeping strategy and to share information about their own activities, projects and experiences in regards to digital recordkeeping. It is also a place to ask questions and offer advice to others who may be going through similar experiences."

Opening the Catalogue

"The aim of this project is to identify datasets relating to the NSW State Archives collection and publish them in accessible ways. Data published by this project could spark new interfaces to the collection, create new possibilities for federated searching, or allow creative re-purposing such as in visualisations or in applications.

As a first step, State Records NSW is publishing data from its online catalogue, Archives Investigator. This data is in a raw form and can be downloaded from the Datasets page.

Soldier Settlement

Soldier settlementA Land Fit for Heroes? A History of Soldier Settlement in New South Wales, 1916-1939

"The digger has an iconographic status in Australian society and in recent years thousands of families have charted the service record of relatives who served in the first AIF.  ‘A Land Fit for Heroes?’ will extend and enrich those histories, recovering the returned soldier as important a historical entity as the men and women who went to war." 

This project has been generously funded by the Australian Research Council, Monash University and the University of New England, under an ARC linkage scheme, together with linkage partners State Records NSW and the Department of Veterans’ Affairs.
