Anzacs Online is the Memorial’s ambitious 1915 Centenary project, which will make the Memorial’s most important collections available for all Australians online. The project will involve the digitisation of hundreds of collections to be added to the website, creating a comprehensive digital archive on the ANZACS and their deeds, and on the wider Australian experience of war. This represents a new era of digitisation for the Memorial; we will be embarking on digitising collections that involve different processes and web innovation to make them available online.
