Digitising our MUHS Collection
Milton Ulladulla Historical Society has been part of an exciting new project, funded by Create NSW and managed by Shoalhaven City Council to create digital records of our collection. Local and regional collections have such a wealth of place-unique historical information, and it’s important that everyone everywhere can access that information. By digitising our documents, photographs and objects as part of a new online catalogue, we can open up our resources to all.
Our online catalogue is located at eHive, an innovative web-based system that will helps us catalogue, organise and share our collection in a simple and secure way. Many museums and historical societies around the world are using eHive as a way of sharing their collections.
Cataloguing and digital record making will take us many months but the first round of objects is now available for viewing on eHive here:
