Dictionary of Sydney – End of an Era
The Dictionary of Sydney is an incredible online project. It all started back in 2005 when a group of historians and industry partners secured a 5-year Australian Research Council grant to present Sydney’s history in a connected digital format. It was at the forefront of the digital humanities.
But now it’s time to say goodbye. The Dictionary of Sydney is gradually winding down and will be archived at the State Library of NSW. Don’t panic! You’ll still be able to access all your favourite articles, search the website and answer all those tricky questions, friendly disputes and pub quizzes. The Dictionary will remain as a reliable source of historical information about Sydney.
In the final radio segment on 2SER Lisa Murray, who happened to do the first Dictionary of Segment on 2ser, joined Breakfast Host Willy Russo to say farewell.
