Amplify

You are invited to explore, listen to and transcribe the voices of Wagga Wagga

North Wagga's "We shall not be moved" sign

Powered by the State Library of NSW, Amplify delivers audio material from a number of cultural institutions across New South Wales, and Wagga Wagga City Library is proud to be among the first four NSW public libraries to join the partnership.

These oral histories, many of which have been preserved digitally from their original format, are being delivered online for the first time, paired with machine-generated transcripts.

At Amplify, you can explore hours of fascinating interviews that capture Australian life, people and history. You can also help enrich these important cultural documents by correcting any errors in the transcripts you may find as you listen along.

Find the voices of Wagga Wagga here.
