From its inception in 2004, APSR set out to develop test beds in its partner universities. These concentrated on issues of repository development, management, integration, sustainability and the creation of tools. These testbed activities and pilot projects have formed the foundation of the promising infrastructure, services, tools and frameworks being provided by APSR in 2007. The University of Queensland has developed the Fez software for institutional repositories. Fez provides a powerful front end to the Fedora framework and has proved a popular option around the world, being implemented in Europe and the USA. The University of Sydney has demonstrated the linking of heterogeneous repositories and collections using the iSpheres connector. Repositories here provide a sustainable basis for open access publishing. The Australian National University has been active in the international collaboration to develop the DSpace repository software. APAC and the National Library of Australia have collaborated with the university partners on noteworthy projects such as AONS (Automated Obsolescence Notifi cation System), the Digital Scholar’s Workbench, AERES (Australian eResearch Sustainbility Survey), PRESTA (PREMIS Requirement Statement) and FIDAS (Fieldwork Data Sustainability). Details of all of these, and more, can be found on the APSR website at
