The current project, commissioned by AIATSIS, has started
transcribing these notes with the goal of making them more readily
useable for language research, especially by the Nyungar community. A
protocol for the project was developed with community members to
address cultural concerns. The transcription system allows for
multiple presentations of the content, including facsimiles of the
original pages. The system employs XML markup to preserve the major

Interpretative annotation is also being added at some points,
including cross-references within the materials and to other sources.
The system is designed to provide for continuing annotation by future
