The aim of the project is the production of a retrospective bibliography of newspapers, journals and books published by Croats in Australia and New Zealand. The first phase of the project involves newspapers and journals and the second phase involves books published, edited and/or written by Croats in Australia and New Zealand.
The methodology includes (1) searching catalogues of national libraries in Croatia, Australia and New Zealand, (2) content analysis of other relevant sources and (3) collaboration with Croatian organizations, associations and individuals in Australia and New Zealand.
The software used for the bibliography is open source software Koha, an open source software that is used by the Library of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences.
In the second phase of the project, we aim to produce a bibliography of all books written, published and/or edited by Croats in Australia and New Zealand.
