Online Databases

As part of the Regional Frontiers project, the Heritage Futures Research Centre (HRFC) at the University of New England, Armidale, has developed an online relational database which is being used for various projects.

Designed and maintained by Janis Wilton, School of Humanities, and Armidale IT Solutions, the databases provide a means to collate, connect and share research, through the linking of sites, people, objects, documents and images.

These databases are works in progress, being added to by volunteers as time permits. Additional information for these databases would be much appreciated.

Databases of particular interest to the Inverell district are:
