Australian Cooperative Digitisation Project
The Australian Cooperative Digitisation Project was a pilot digitisation project coordinated by the National Library of Australia, and was funded in 1995. The project undertook the development of a digital library of Australian journals, newspapers and novels published in the period 1840-1845.
This collection includes all four of the items that were transcribed by the University of Sydney Library as part of this project:
- Love Story /by a Bushman (1841), by William Harvey Christie (1808-1873);
- Tales for the Bush (1845), by Mary Theresa Vidal (1815-1873);
- Adventures of a Colonist (1845), by Thomas McCrombie (1819-1869); and
- Tales of the Colonies (1843), by Charles Rowcroft (1798-1856).
