Summary

The NSW Archaeology Online (NSW AOL) Project (2009-13) is Co-Directed by Sarah Colley and Martin Gibbs and is the first sustainable digital archive of archaeological information developed in Australia. The project involves collaboration with the University of Sydney Library, the Archaeology of Sydney Research Group and local professional historical archaeologists with funding from a NSW state heritage grant. NSW AOL is configured to support full-text search and display and will soon provides online access to over 1000 previously unpublished and previously inaccesible consultancy reports and  student theses about historical archaeology and heritage in NSW. The paper uses NSW AOL as a case study to discuss ethical and practical issues raised for Australian archaeology by these kinds of digital technologies and outlines proposed future developments and why they are important to archaeological research, professional practice and public outreach.
