SLQ

Collected Work from Placement at the State Library of Queensland:

Created for the State Library of Queensland (SLQ) this album looked at the everyday experiences in Queensland during WWI. The images I selected were correctly recorded on Flickr with accurate and attentive metadata and comprehensive rights information.

A video I prepared for and published with the State Library of Queensland discussing how social tagging  can be used to enhance collection items and explore new ways of describing content.

I worked as part of the QANZAC campaign for three months within the State Library of Queensland. My contributions were to promote archival newspaper content from Trove to paint a picture of the early days of the Great War as well as surfacing interesting anecdotes and stories from the era. I sourced, referenced,  and composed posts for Twitter to help deliver this content to a wider audience. While my contributions only ran through 1914-1915, the campaign is ongoing and can be viewed live on Twitter including notable retweets by the Premier of Queensland. I’ve also included examples of contributions to some of the campaign spreadsheets.

As part of the campaign I also worked on highlighting particularly interesting trends and notable anecdotes from the archival papers, and published longer-form posts in collaboration with Margaret Warren that found a place on the SLQ website and blogs.

While not directly related to the QANZAC campaign, I also contributed a selection of the Historypin images for SLQ. Many including picture-matched street view options, and some original photography. (1)(2)(3)(4)(5)(6)(7)(8)(9)(10)(11)(12)(13)(14)(15)(16)(17)

Prepared for QUT’s INN530: Online Information Systems course, these two videos detail the wireframes and high-level IA I designed for a hypothetical revamp of the State Library’s ‘Corner Toolkit’ website.
