Records exhibition - [art meets archive]
Records Centre, Globe Street, The Rocks, Sydney 2000, Australia
April - 13th July 2002
In this exhibition,
curated by Susan Charlton, the ICOLS website was juxtaposed with 'Archives
Investigator' - State Recordsą web-based access and information system.
Susan saw a connection between the ICOLS project and 'Archives Investigator'
(AI), which charts the evolution of government agencies - from the beginning
of the NSW colony to the present - as a contextual finding aid for researchers
seeking State records.
A quick search through the 1500 agencies already documented on 'Archives
) reveals agencies whose titles, at least, are no less quizzical than
those that appear on ICOLS, notably the Board of Tick Control (agency
1950), The Dust Diseases Tribunal (agency 443) and the Wild Dog Destruction
Board (agency 1127).
