Western Sydney / ANDS MODC project
Western Sydney University's Major Open Data Collection (MODC) project was funded by the Australian National Data Service (ANDS). The Major Open Data Collections program aimed to develop internationally significant collections that provide institutions with a valuable opportunity to enhance their research data assets, enable new partnerships to be formed, and enable new data intensive approaches that address internationally significant research challenges.
The From Farms to Freeways oral history project was identified as meeting the criteria for the MODC project at Western Sydney University, with a focus on developing a data collection which supports the University's strong commitment to the Western Sydney region.
Digitisation and OCR conversion of the existing printed transcripts was undertaken by the University Library. The Library also kindly funded the digitisation of the existing audio cassette recordings, undertaken by DAMsmart in Canberra.
