Our Winter Archival Projects

Posted on in | 0 comments

Over the last few months we have been busy working with a local council and the Department of Environment on some important archival projects. A Letter from The King The City of Mitcham Historical Department had come into possession of some very old and important photos and documents from the early 1900s. The material was in quite good condition although very fragile, and we only had a short amount of time to digitise everything while it was on a generous short-term loan from the owner. We digitised a thank you letter personally signed by King George V, appreciative of Corporal Harris’ service during WWI. Also note the original seal...

How to Clean Your DVD Player

Posted on in , | 0 comments

Does your DVD player need a spring clean? You may not realise, but over time your DVD player will get dirty. Dust, dirt and other particles can clog up the lens that reads the ‘information’ from your DVD, making DVDs glitchy or sometimes completely unwatchable! A Disc Cleaner is a system that cleans the lens of your DVD player, using tiny little brushes attached to the underside of a disc to remove dirt and dust from the lens. In fact, all optical disc players need to and can be cleaned, including CD players, CD-ROMs, Blu-Ray or DVD players, and even an Xbox or PlayStation.

Digitising Local History Collections

Posted on in | 0 comments

Over the last month we have been working closely with both the Burnside Historical Society and the Port Adelaide Enfield Library to digitise sections of their Local History Collections.

They touch on topics such as housing, education, fashion, work and entertainment amongst other things, with plenty of interesting and sometimes amusing stories along the way!
