Join the Author’s Interest Project to breathe new life into out-of-print books

The Author’s Interest Project is working with libraries and authors on a seed project to digitize important Australian out-of-print books to make them available for readers to borrow in digital form. This will create a new revenue stream for authors whilst simultaneously reclaiming lost culture for the public. We’re looking for a Research Assistant to help.
