A novel approach to collecting digital content for heritage collections is being explored and assessed in a trial of Vizie, an innovative social media tool researched and developed by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation. Collecting digital content for heritage collections is a priority for research libraries and other cultural institutions. This paper reports on the progress and learnings to date of the ongoing collaboration between the CSIRO and the State Library of New South Wales. The aim of the collaboration is to gather and curate online content centred around significant events and every day life in Australia and New South Wales.
