Australian South Sea Islander Resource Discovery Workshop leads to online content
The State Library of Queensland invited Australian South Sea Islanders to look at collection materials recently, leading to the digitisation of content for the upcoming 150 years’ commemorations that will take place in the Cultural Centre precinct at South Bank this August.
By combining the knowledge of the Australian South Sea Islander descendents with digitisation processes at State Library, content is being made available online to the world. State Library thanks the descendents who attended the workshop for contributing their knowledge to create new knowledge for Queenslanders.
Collection materials were pulled out of the repository and included maps, photographs and many unique books about indentured labourers from the South Sea Islands working in Queensland starting in 1863.
