Digital Publishing in North Queensland Schools
Collage  of artwork The Digital Publishing Project in 1997 at Herberton State Secondary School demonstrates that the production of locally created and printed books containing colour images is feasible even in remote, rural schools. The content of the book is based on students’ experiences and regional lifestyles. Students have been valued members in this production which depended on creative student work. The book is reproduced in these web pages with minor adaptations for the different media.

Who Are We: remote, rural schools in Far North Queensland, Australia, producing digital publications with content relevant to regional lifestyles.
Technical Aspects and Reflections: Project Facilitator Jerry Jeffress gives the technical details and muses about the implications of local control in publishing.
