Royal Geographical Society archive launch, presented by Wiley

Wiley has partnered with The Royal Geographical Society (including IBG) to digitise and conserve the two-million-piece collection spanning over 500 years of travel and exploration, research and thought.

 This session discusses the Wiley relationship with the RGS, the digitisation process and archive content.

 The massive primary source archive offers students and researchers immediate access to the RGS collection, bringing the work of some of the foremost geographers and explorers to life, from the Antarctic discoveries of Scott and Shackleton, to the pioneering work of Livingstone, Stanley, Hunt and Hillary among others.


The Institute of Australian Geographers (IAG) is the principal body representing geographers and promoting the study and application of geography in Australia. It was founded in 1958 and since then has promoted, supported and defended Australian geography.
