ALIA Information Online 2015 Conference, 2-5 February 2015, Sydney: at the edge.
This conference paper discusses the challenges involved in making big data accessible. The authors ask: How could we take the hundreds of thousands of program descriptions from the RN website and make them available to Trove users in a meaningful way – so they can discover the one little record in that big data set that is of relevance to them? How do we help digital historians find the answers, before they know what the question is? There are many more collections like that of RN – trusted, completely online and highly valued. This is one example of thinking beyond the edge of our system and the huge benefits it brought.
