Timeline of Demonstrations covered by the Tribune from 1965 to 1969

Together the Events Team extracted the metadata from the State Library of NSW’s collection and streamlined the information and relevant photographs into a spreadsheet. The streamlined spreadsheet data included a title of the event, new tags and relevant photographs from the original negative strip.

Last week we translated that data into Knight Lab’s Timeline spreadsheet in order to create a timeline of the events we were working with. Our streamlined data made the conversion to Knight Lab’s spreadsheet a simple task and within a week we had a functioning timeline.

The timeline also had several categories (such as Anti-Vietnam War and UAW Conference) to help see the nature of a demonstration before even clicking on it.
