Through collection acquisition, digitisation, engagement and data sharing activities, State Library of Queensland’s QANZAC100: Memories for a New Generation project has created a unique digital legacy of Queensland participation in the First World War. With an aim to increase understanding of Queenslanders’ experiences during and after the First World War, the project has also built the capacity of community stakeholders to explore and share local and family stories, enabled researchers to access content, explored how the war is remembered, and encouraged a re-examination of the past. In order to sustain a digital legacy, outcomes of the project have been considered as data, with intent to achieve open, structured, interoperable, and re-usable data.
