For those of you who were not able to join us last Thursday evening, you can now watch the keynote address here. Many thanks to Nicole Kearney for arranging this for us.
I have also posted a talk originally proposed for the symposium, but not specifcally related to natural history (though it does feature some marvellous animals in the watermarks). The talk is by Ian Christie-Miller, who has designed a very good system for photographing backlit watermarks and demonstrates in his talk the value of watermark information.
Thanks again to all who presented last Friday, esp. Rosi Crane for framing our day with clear connections to natural history publications in NZ, and to all who joined us online. I was relieved that the technology behaved for the most part, and am grateful for the support from the University lecture theatre technicians and eConferencing services. This was our largest symposium to date, thanks to online participation.
