Research reveals is a webinar series showcasing research projects of the 2019 Queensland Memory fellows, residents and award winners. Gain a unique insight into Queensland history and the collections of the John Oxley Library in this series of fascinating online webinars, where you will have the opportunity to be part of an exclusive event as fellows present the research they have undertaken over the previous 12 months.
Join Seth Ellis, the 2019 Mittelheuser Scholar-in-Residence as he shares his research and developments from his project 'Sound as historical material: developing a new way of cataloguing, describing and accessing sound in the archive'.
Seth's project proposes new ways of cataloguing sounds within the State Library’s collections—both historical, and newly collected. This tool will make historical sound more searchable and perceptible by researchers and the general public.
In audio visual collections, a single sound recording can provide the same multilayered information as a photograph: a multiplicity of details about experience that is physical and emotional. The examination of sound in this way can provide a rich understanding of experience.
