PARADISEC Activity Update – May 2020

Well, this has been the strangest quarter on memory, I’m sure a lot of folks can relate. All PARADISEC staff and affiliates, across our three main institutional location (Universities of Sydney & Melbourne, and ANU in Canbera) have been working at home for the past 6+ weeks. This has slowed down some aspects of our operations such as processing and accessioning to archive large volumes of large files (especially video), and digitising certain tape media that require specialised equipment not easy to re-locate.

That said, we recently passed a significant milestone, adding our 300,000th file into the collection! As ever, we’re proud of the ongoing work we’re doing in keeping this amazing and valuable set of materials growing.
