TASMANIAN CONVICT RECORD SESSION:
In conjunction with the conference [panels on Saturday morning (which will be held in the State Library,) Hamish Maxwell-Stewart is currently organizing for Saturday afternoon a tour of the convict and other record groups as well as a meeting on related convict and life course projects. This would be an opportunity to co-ordinate future research strategies with Tasmanian Archives staff, which could cover digitisation, transcription, linkage and coding of key record groups + strategies for improving archival interfaces etc.
