|Abstract:||For more than two centuries, the history of the Indigenous people of the Sydney region has remained locked away in archives, held within families, or obliterated by the dominant culture. Now, with community approval and co-operation, our project, A history of Aboriginal Sydney, is beginning to use digital tools to restore Sydney's Aboriginal history in forms which can be appreciated and shared by the families themselves, by high school students and by everyone who values the history and culture of Australia's first peoples. Our project is based on the developing knowledge management platform, which integrates historical records, methods and tools of e-scholarship, and solutions for delivering research data for different uses. The project team employs methods such as marking of topic threads, and linking data with interactive timelines and digital maps to enable online learning and information discovery on the website . The project itself is based in the Department of History, University of Sydney and is funded by an Australia Research Council, Australian Professorial Fellowship and Discovery Grant. The research data are archived in ATSIDA (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Data Archive), which provides long-term preservation and manages appropriate access to the data.|
