Digitisation of the Haswell collection commenced in 2016 support by funds granted by the University of Sydney’s Chancellor’s Committee. From the outset, the project adopted the “students-as-partners” model with student volunteers and undergraduate interns coming from biology and museum studies to work on the project (Team Haswell).
