The Federated Archaeological Information Management System (FAIMS) collection includes Australian archaeological datasets, or archaeological datasets created by Australian archaeologists. The collection was originally part of the FAIMS Repository, created in 2013 by the FAIMS project as part of the National eResearch Collaboration Tools and Resources (NeCTAR) program. The Repository adopted the tDAR system to store data sets, documents, images, and sensory data produced by archaeological research in Australia or collected by Australian archaeologists working abroad. The primary focus of this first phase of the FAIMS project was the creation of an Android mobile application for archaeological field recording, and much of the development of the Repository was concerned with automating the ingest of data created on the mobile app. The Repository also subsumed the Australian Historical Archaeological Database (AHAD).
Australasian Society for Historical Archaeology (ASHA) Archive This is an archive of the Australasian Society for Historical Archaeology's primary journal, 'Australasian Historical Archaeology' which was known as the 'Journal of Australian Historical Archaeology' from 1983 to 1991. The vast majority of the archive is available free of charge. More recent issues are restricted to members of the Society and available from their website.
Casey & Lowe Resources and projects undertaken by Casey & Lowe and submitted by them to AHAD.
La Trobe University This collection includes resources and projects undertaken by archaeologists from La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia.
NSW Archaeology Online: Image Archive The NSW Archaeology Online: Image Archive contains digitized photographs, metadata and some support documents related to historical places in NSW, and some beyond, recorded by Ian Jack and Judy Birmingham for archaeological research and heritage consultancy projects conducted mainly between the 1960s and 1990s. The Ian Jack Image Collection comprises thousands of photographs and slides of NSW industrial sites in regions including Bathurst, Lithgow, Mudgee Shire and Evans Shire. The Judy Birmingham Image Collection contains slides taken between the 1960s-1990s at a large variety of archaeological sites and locations in NSW, plus some from elsewhere in Australia and the South Pacific. The images are of public interest and have research value for documenting and understanding places and landscapes of historical and archaeological importance to NSW, including many which have now changed significantly or no longer exist. The NSW Archaeology Online Image Archive was funded by a 2011-13 Community Strategic Products and Services grant awarded to Sarah Colley and Martin Gibbs (Archaeology, University of Sydney) by the NSW Heritage Council and the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage. Annika Korsgaard took major responsibility for archive implementation. This Image Archive extends the NSW Archaeology Online Grey Literature Archive (hosted by University of Sydney Library at: http://nswaol.library.usyd.edu.au or via Research Data Australia at: http://researchdata.ands.org.au/nsw-archaeology-online-grey-literature-archive) as part of a larger project initiated in 2009 to conduct, support and advocate research and public education about archaeology and heritage in the state. A key component is to create open access online archives of important information about historical archaeology and heritage in NSW which has been previously hard to access, undervalued and sometimes at risk of being lost (Gibbs, M. & S. Colley 2012. Digital preservation, online access and historical archaeology ‘grey literature’ from New South Wales, Australia. Australian Archaeology 75: 95-103.). Information written on the back of photographs was also scanned and included here using the same filename as the image. Information on slide casings has been transcribed into datasets in Excel spreadsheet format. To use the slide collections either search the appropriate dataset for specific words to find correlating image names or browse through the images and lookup associated metadata in the dataset. The ‘NSW Archaeology Online Image Archive - Methodology’ document – also available here – contains further information, conditions of use and contact information and users are advised to read...
