There are clear indications that online access to digital archival material is transforming historical scholarship. To date, the role of libraries and archives is primarily in the production and dissemination of this resource. Closer collaboration between historians and the creators and administrators of digital archives is an emerging area of interest for those seeking to contribute to future developments in methodologies around the use of digital archives in teaching and research. The case study in this paper reports on a work-in-progress collaboration to enhance the discovery of digital archival materials in teaching and research at the University of Wollongong.
