From bibliography to blogstage

Grehan, H.ORCID: 0000-0002-9257-5615 (2008) From bibliography to blogstage. In: AusStage Symposium, 25 September 2008, Flinders University, Adelaide.


This report details the steps undertaken in the last year to integrate critical literature into the existing record of data and the proposed future direction of the bibliographic team which includes the introduction of the BlogStage project. The goals for the past year in the bibliographic stream of AusStage's development have been twofold. Initially, we started out intending to begin integrating critical literature into the existing AusStage database. We undertook a logistical and critical analysis of how we might do this by exploring the range and scope of literature that might be considered relevant to extant AusStage data as well as the range of methods that users might want to access this literature through the database. The outcome of this review resulted in a work plan for us to begin integrating book, journal and print-related literature but also produced the second goal for the AusStage team in the bibliographic strand: the introduction and description of a web-based, tertiary site of AusStage specifically created to interact, archive and contribute to the growing practice of theatre-related blog writing. We've called this site BlogStage during its developmental phase. This presentation briefly discusses the logic behind the introduction of critical literature to the database along with an assessment of how far we have progressed through that process along with a discussion of the status and development of BlogStage. It concludes by discussing some of the future directions for the project.
