Transforming collection description

ALIA Information Online 2019 Conference, 11-15 February 2019 Sydney: Infinite Possibilities
 
This conference paper explores how the National Library of Australia has transformed collection description and access for its digital heritage collections. The fundamental change from an item-by-item process, to large-scale data collection achieves efficiencies, enables rapid access, and allows the collection of previously complex electronic formats from publishers, photographers and donors.

Re imagining libraries

ALIA National 2014 Conference, 15-19 September 2014 Melbourne : together we are stronger
This conference presentation explores how the role of libraries have long been custodians of ‘more than just books’.  For NSLA libraries, the personal stories collected in our diaries, correspondence, photographs, artworks and realia are some of our most precious items.  The rapid increase in digitally-created material has posed many problems, but also offered many opportunities, for libraries.
