Once again, our Australian cultural institutions are showing their resourcefulness in making the most of web 2.0 technology to share historical information with the public.
“To assist communities to unearth, document, care for, and share their stories, through the study of dress for everyone’s future benefit”.
It is a collaborative online project which collects and categorises information and images of dress in New South Wales pre-1945. Museums and private collectors are encouraged to research their garments and share this valuable information on the register. This initiative provides instant access to a unique central dataset, while keeping the physical garments in their relevant locations.
