I am super excited and incredibly honoured to have the opportunity to undertake an overseas research travel project in August/September 2019. Supported by the Gordon Darling Foundation through the Darling Travel Grants - Global, the aim of my project is to investigate how cultural institutions abroad are acquiring, preserving and providing access to born-digital collections.

This will be my first time travelling to the United Kingdom and Europe, as well as my first time travelling solo overseas. I will be spending time in London, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Amsterdam where I will be visiting some amazing organisations (and I am open for more visits - get in touch!) and attending iPRES for the first time as well! I will also be making a quick stop over to Dublin at the end of the trip, which I am also super excited about (more details to come).

I look forward to meeting new people as well as catching up with those I have previously met online and face to face in Australia. I haven't quite decided whether I will actively blog while travelling, but I will definitely be posting to my Twitter and Instagram accounts.
