    Abstract

    Journeys in Time 1809-1822 is a major research initiative undertaken by Macquarie University Library to create an electronic archive of selected writings by Lachlan and Elizabeth Macquarie. It forms part of the Accessible Lifelong Learning (ALL) Project, a joint partnership between Macquarie University and the State Library of New South Wales. Journeys in Time is designed to provide scholarly access to primary source texts describing early colonial life in Australia. It also seeks to commemorate some of the tangible links between Macquarie University and its namesake, Lachlan Macquarie, the fifth governor of the colony of New South Wales (1810-1822). This article traces the development of the Journeys in Time project and explores some of the technical and design challenges that had to be met in the preparation of the transcripts and hypertext versions of the original documents.
