5.2 Build Your Library and Create Your First Entries

- Your Language Journey Workbook -

As part of this workshop you have been given a section of one of our key written sources for the Awabakal language: An Australian Language, by Lancelot Threlkeld, published in 1892. Threlkeld worked with Awabakal man and tribal chief, Biraban, to translate the Gospels of Luke and Mark into Awabakal during his time running the Aboriginal mission in Newcastle.

TASK: For this task, imagine that you have just obtained this new source for your language and want to begin to add it to your community documentation in Miromaa.

  1. Digitise this source and upload it to your Miromaa library so it becomes a Library Item
  2. Be sure to add details into all fields in the library section, acknowledging and respecting this source
  3. Create a new entry for each of the words on the word list, they will then get their unique Miromaa ID number
  4. For each of your entries enter the following fields:
    a) Awabakal word and English word
    b) Attribute your entry to the source
    c) Add reference details in the source section (in this case it will be page number)
    d) Assign word category
    e) Assign part of speech
    f) Add extra information
    g) Add knowledge
    h) Add linguistic comments
    i) Add multimedia: image, audio, video
