Catalogue updates - August 2017

Lise Summers Monday, August 21, 2017 - 14:51

Since the start of 2017, staff have been uploading new items to the online catalogue. Many of these descriptions have been created by our Work Experience Project teams over a number of years, and feature some extra details beyond merely the item title and date range.  You'll see material from the Egg Marketing Board of WA, some new intestate files and transfers from Mental Health., for instance. In addition, we’ve uploaded the remaining fieldbooks digitised with funding from the Friends of Battye. While the original project focused on the fieldbooks of surveyors with surnames starting with A, this second tranche was based on the contribution made by certain surveyors like John Spetimus Roe, Alexander and John Forrest, the Lefroys and so on.

(Some fieldbooks equal or exceed 100MiB. To see these items, please contact sro@sro.wa.gov.au so we can work with you to find the most suitable format and delivery method.)

Why not browse our catalogue to see what’s been added recently? Simply choose Archival Description on the side menu on the catalogue home page, and then use the filter to sort by Recent Updates. Choose “Show results with digital objects” for the fieldbooks.
