Hi All, Last week I attended THATCamp Sydney <http://sydney2013.thatcamp.org/> held at the State Library of New South Wales. One of the Library managers presented a session about the library's current massive digitisation project and its relation to their forthcoming exhibitions about World War I. Among other things, they have 1100 WWI diaries and are digitising them as well as transcribing them as well as photographing objects. On 11 November they will be launching a new WWI website.
Reminder The State Library of NSW is hosting our first backstage pass in the Library on *23 November *and that will be followed by an editathon. They want to meet us and we want to see their collection. We should be able to improve Australian content on this topic. Join us there! Go to the Project page<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/World_War_I_edit-a-thons/Australia>to sign up (it would help catering). Online participation is also possible. Whiteghost.ink
