Sandringham & District Historical Society Inc. - Sandringham, VIC
Do you love searching online for answers to questions about our
history, on Trove, Google, etc ?
Our historical society has a very large Collection, and
over 13,000 items have been professionally catalogued by volunteers
over the past couple of decades. In the next week or two, the
whole catalogue will be searchable online through our own web site
and the online platform eHive.
We receive enquiries from various sources: people who walk into
our Resource Centre at 62 Bay Road Sandringham, by email,
facebook, web page and snail mail.
Most of our Collection is still in hard copy but more and more
of it is being digitised.
We have many volunteers who are exceptionally knowledgable about
our collection and very good at searching the hard copy files but
we need additional volunteers who are adept at, and love to use the
internet and other digital sources including our own digitised
documents on our own computers.
As this task is focussed on online research we believe that it
could be done at home if this is better for you. For example,
you may have a fast computer with fast internet or live too far
away to be able to come into our Resource Centre or may even have
mobility issues which restrict your ability to come into the
Resource Center but do not impair your ability to reseach online.
We would love to hear from you to discuss this opportunity.
Flexible. One-off half day, or 2 hours per week, any time is
appreciated and helpful.
