New student blog posts

Each year, students from the graduate course Digital Humanities MULT900056 work through the process of digitising UMA material, including selection, metadata creation, digitisation and publication.

The students also have a session with our digital archivists to understand the range of tasks and challenges involved in digital archiving (not just digitisation!)

Finally, the students write us a blog post based on the selection of material that we've digitised. In 2018, this included:

  • Daub, the journal of the National Gallery School night students
  • A diary of Raymond Priestley, geologist, antarctic explorer and Vice Chancellor
  • A diary of Frank Tate, Victorian educationalist

We love the variety of responses from the students to the three items. It's very entertaining reading: http://blogs.unimelb.edu.au/archives/digital-humanities/.
