Join our research team as a volunteer for the exciting citizen science project, OzDocs. You don’t need any research experience and you can participate online from home.
As a volunteer in the Ozdocs program you will have the opportunity to explore fascinating historical records and collections including:
- Early newspapers
- Correspondence and accounts from early settlers
- Accounts of colonial scholars
You’ll be searching these historical records to uncover valuable information about Australia’s turbulent climate history. OzDocs volunteers are digging up detailed accounts of droughts, floods, bush fires, locust plagues and there’s so much more waiting to be discovered.
You can chose to work on high priority tasks or we can help you find a task that suits your personal interests.
