Connecting to collections about the Sunshine Coast
By JOL Admin | 12 February 2015
Many different groups, individuals and organisations maintain Queensland heritage collections and items.
In 2014 State Library partnered with the Sunshine Coast Council to run a pilot program of workshops supporting the heritage organisations in the region.
The program comprised five days of training spread over several weeks. Participants discussed a STACK framework exploring unique collections (Stuff); various Tools; aspects in support of Advocacy, Capacity within each organisation; and how to manage new Knowledge. Members experienced digitisation and explored ways to share information online. The outcome was a renewed heritage network on the Sunshine Coast and an ongoing commitment by the Sunshine Coast Council and heritage program.
Staff from State Library worked with dedicated and knowledgeable participants. Represented were:
- Bli Bli on Maroochy Historical Society
- Buderim Historical Society
- Discover Eumundi Heritage and Visitor Centre
- Friends of Bankfoot House
- Landsborough Museum / Landsborough District Historical Society
- Peachester History Committee
- Noosa Library Service
- Sunshine Coast Heritage Library
Putting skills into practice, the group chose practical projects to showcase digitised content using the theme ‘changing landscapes of the Sunshine Coast’.
