NSW Australian Mukurtu Hub Launch Announcement

The Mukurtu Hubs and Spokes network is growing. The State Library of New South Wales Indigenous Engagement and the Jumbunna Institute for Indigenous Education and Research at the University of Technology Sydney have partnered to provide Mukurtu support within the state, and across Australia.

In December, Mukurtu director, Dr. Kim Christen, was at the Jumbunna Institute for the official  launch of the new Hub. After years of partnership, the launch marked a new phase of collaboration between Mukurtu, the Library and Jumbunna. Starting in mid 2019, the Mukurtu Team at WSU will begin remote Mukurtu training with Hub staff, while they begin outreach to local communities. 

The Library and Jumbunna join the existing Mukurtu Hubs: the Kaipumakani Project at  University of Hawaii Manoa, WiLS and the iSchool at University of Wisconsin Madison, the Yale Indian Papers Project at Yale Divinity School, University of Oregon Libraries, and the Alaska Native Language Archive at University of Alaska Fairbanks.
