Sharing custom templates

As suggested on Twitter, I’m sharing some customised templates that I’ve been using for a recent project. They’re adapted from the Tropy Generic template. I hope that they are sufficiently distinct to require a new forum topic. (And please, share other templates!)

My project is on mid-20th century refugee resettlment in Australia, and so, my templates are for two Canberra-based collections. However, since I’m new, I can only post one attachment at a time.

NLA - is the National Library of Australia. I’ve been using it for archival holdings of personal and institutional papers like this one https://nla.gov.au/nla.cat-vn779355

There was sufficient correspondence in the NLA material to warrant a separate template.

And the other institution is the National Archives of Australia (NAA)

I’ve been using it for holdings like this one: http://www.naa.gov.au/cgi-bin/Search?O=I&Number=8118373

These are all great! Thank you so much for sharing!

I’ve been making custom templates for 1790-1820s Naval letters at the UK National Archives and the Caird Library, but they are super specific–designed for the ADM 1 Admiralty in-letters from the former and the Navy Board out-letters at the latter. I’m not really sure that the fields I selected were the right ones to use but they work for me.
