About the records
Scope and Content
The Stephen Wurm textual collection consists of some 24 items of notes, transcripts and correspondence which have been archived by Paradisec. These records were transferred to Paradisec by Stephen Wurm's widow in September 2004 as part of a larger collection of materials, the bulk of which were audio recordings. What is documented in this guide are some of the records relating to his Solomon Islands linguistic work that have been digitally imaged. All of these items are associated with the audio field recordings held by Paradisec.
The imaging of the part of the collection on this site was done using a Canon Poweshot G6. In 2005, funding was received from an ARC LIEF grant which allowed this work to be completed. The following people have contributed to this project: Nicholas Thieberger, Gavan McCarthy, Ailia Smith, and Rebecca Plueckhahn. Higher resolution copies of the images are stored in the PARADISEC archive. The Austehc HDMS software was used to create this online guide.
