AS usual, none of the hyperlinks used in this presentation have carried over on upload. The management are looking into this issue.
Until they fix the problem, I've included all relevant hyperlinks in the Comments field for the slides concerned. You'll need to look there.

  • Here are a few examples of the ways we’ve started using Web2.0 features to tour the web and put our content out well beyond our home website, reaching bigger social networks and engaging new audiences at the curatorial level.
    http://www.awm.gov.au/podcast/index.asp
    RSS underpins much of Web2.0, by allowing the public to select their subscriptions and then have them delivered to them on a regular basis. The links takes you to our podcasts page. This was our first foray with Web2.0 and RSS.
    http://apps.new.facebook.com/artshare/
    We have just gone live with ArtShare - a program developed by Brooklyn Museum to allow for selected art works to be featured on Facebook profile pages.
    http://blog.awm.gov.au/awm/2008/03/19/hmas-sydney/
    http://frommelbin.blogspot.com/
    The blogs have been the simplest, easiest to use model that has allowed our curators there own voice on the web about our collections and their work. WordPress is used by the Memorial and some of our staff use Blogger (externally).
    http://www.facebook.com/pages/Canberra-Australia/Australian-War-Memorial/7244252524
    Facebook plunges us into growing social networks with more reach than we have and allows us to communicate with those more comfortable in that
    space.
    http://www.flickr.com/groups/awm/
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/australianwarmemorial/
    Flickr is also a two-way process allowing us to share images with everyone and to learn from the public’s visual pointers to their interests in us.
    http://www.youtube.com/user/AustWarMemorial
    YouTube is another vital way to engage a large audience interested in the moving image. We think it is important to re-use our content and provide interpretation of it on that large network.
    http://www.pictureaustralia.org/
    We’ve long been a major contributor to Picture Australia, a fantastic portal to cultural images from NLA. It is a great model for further collaborative projects along the same lines.
    http://www.ning.com/
    We use Ning internally as a social network platform to share ideas, learn about social media, discuss proposals and to help move projects forward.
    http://www.awm.gov.au/research/browse.asp
    And we’ve started using del.icio.us social bookmarking to leave muddy footprint trails across our large website for content that isn’t well exposed or that easy to find. We are still learning what del.icio.us can do for us.

  • OK, some notes on this slide as not everything will be self-evident from the links or words (kinda clockwise from Commons):
    http://www.flickr.com/commons
    We have sent a list of our images to Flickr Commons and our institution is likely to be added on 11/11/08.
    http://creativecommons.org/international/au/
    We are seriously looking at CreativeCommons attributions to cover content that we’ve developed for our presence on the web, so as to enable its appropriate re-use.
    http://buddypress.org/
    As we use WordPress as our blogging platform, we will probably take a good look at BuddyPress when it goes live later in 2008. It may extend our blogs to become more of a hosted social network.
    http://yourarchives.nationalarchives.gov.uk/index.php?title=Home_page
    Your Archives (from TNA in the UK) might offer us a good model to facilitate public contributions and a bit of personalisation relating to our archival collections.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QR_Code
    PR codes might be used by us in several ways to facilitate the provision of packets of information to mobile devices with cameras in and the required software. We are looking at this now.
    http://www.awm.gov.au/encyclopedia/index.asp
    Currently we maintain our own military history encyclopedia and it is a pretty big drain on our own resources to keep adding new content, so maybe migrating the content to Wikipedia.org (and helping to manage it) or hosing a wiki where the community could contribute will work for us.
    http://go.footnote.com/thewall/
    We really like the mash-up (linked) to the US Vietnam Veterans Memorial and we are trying to trial much the same thing with our Roll of Honour. Our trial will probably focus on the Korean War panels.

    • It is my ongoing belief that our users will soon get bored with conversations and catalogue records. They want the stuff. They expect it to be online. Now. 2 2
    • Global trends in digitisation • Faster, better, cheaper equipment & storage • Better DAMS & CMS software • Institutional repositories • More audio & film • Collaboration • Shared collections (eg. Picture Australia) • Mass digitisation programs: Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, Open Content Alliance (OCA), Internet Archive 3 3
