Tick, tick, tick

Waiting for our new site to be regenerated every three months feels to the team like the ad break before they open the envelope at the Oscars. We know that there is great stuff in the new build, 28 new articles, hundreds of new pictures and captions, and over  1000 new entities, facts and links.

But we can’t show it to you till it is all ready!  I’m hoping it will be ready to go public later this week, when I’ll blog about the great new material we’re publishing, the authors who wrote it, and the wonderful images and links that Linda and Paul (our image researchers) and Felicity and Jenny (our research assistants) have found.

The newest Dictionary of Sydney is being built right now!

Meanwhile, our colleagues at  Arts eResearch at the University of Sydney are toiling away building over 10,000 pages of HTML from our electronic repository, with all the indexes, browse pages and navigation that a historical website could ever need.

Stay tuned for exciting news about our ‘light’ version of the site, designed for mobile and touchscreen devices, too!
