Making connections

As part of the class project exploring the State Library of New South Wales Tribune Negatives Collection, we have been all about making connections.  Using Trove (as username MakingConnections10154) we have identified other photographic collections which overlap and connect to the Tribune collection through themes of activism, social and political movements, demonstrations and prominent individuals.  A spreadsheet (Table 1. Making connections) has been created to record the basic metadata of the collections we have discovered so far.  We have also used the identified themes of each collection to create tags within Trove as a way of making connections between these various collections.
