ALIA New Librarians' Symposium 9 (NLS9), 5-7 July 2019 Adelaide: collaborate deviate innovate
This presentation (PowerPoint slides) supported the lightning talk "The power of humanity: Centenary of ANZAC collaborative projects at the State Library of South Australia".
The State Library of South Australia honoured the memory of those who served at the front lines of WW1 and on the home front through a series of collaborative projects. One outcome was the award-winning South Australian Red Cross Information Bureau website which was a collaborative effort utilising volunteers; collaborating with other GLAM organisations and public libraries led the direction for how SLSA will deliver data and content to users. The success of the website (and our Centenary of ANZAC projects) developed further collaborations with the arts sector including State Theatre Company and the Word Adelaide Festival. The site itself was described by Professor Melanie Oppenheimer (Flinders University) as “one of the highlights of the Centenary of Anzac Commemorations. I would put it up there with the building of the Interpretive Centre at Villers Bretonneux as one of the most important outcomes of the Centenary for Australians”.
