The Australian War Memorial has recently received funding for a four-year digitisation project running from 2018 to 2022. The project aims to digitise collection items at risk of deterioration, including paper records, film, audio, and images. This will help preserve the original items and allow the collection to be more broadly available to researchers into the future.
