Abstract

A City Remembers

As key component of the program to commemorate the Centenary of World War I in the Australian city of Orange, staff at the Orange City Library have developed a Blog and related Wiki where the stories of the men and women who served, and details of the impact of the War on the district have been recorded. The online resource is a combination of official records and personal reminiscences and is intended as a permanent memorial to these men and women. The project has an active community engagement component and has helped to position the Library as a key as a key source of quality assured information and content creation.
