Department of Digital Fabulists

This project has its origins in a talk given by Tim Sherratt to the Department of Digital Fabulists in late 2015. In talking about digitised archives and access to humanities data, Dr Sherratt shared work he had done harvesting images and documents from publicly available ASIO files held in the National Archives of Australia. We were immediately intrigued and keen to work with this dataset. GovHack 2016 presented the perfect opportunity.
