About

DISA is a freely accessible online scholarly resource focusing on the socio-political history of South Africa, particularly the struggle for freedom during the period from 1950 to the first democratic elections in 1994, providing a wealth of material on this fascinating period of the country’s history. Much time, creative thought and debate goes into the selection of the content, and participation and input from interested persons, scholars and institutions in South Africa and overseas is encouraged.

This blog looks at issues around digital curatorship, e-Resources, metadata, repositories, archives, preservation, open access and open source in a Southern African context but drawing on international trends and best practice.
