In 2004, Digital Resource Services (DRS) was involved in the RAQ, an external review of ANU's performance designed to inform the University and the Australian public about the standing of the ANU in the international academic community and about the best ways of developing the ANU for Australia's longer term national interest. Research academics from every discipline represented at the ANU were required to make available to assessment panels a selection of their research output. There were more than 7,500 items (including 3,500 papers), submitted by 1,500 academics. As this was a one-off exercise and public access was not a consideration, access to the documents was limited to the assessors. Document metadata were entered by the depositors, by hand. The documents were stored, mostly as PDF files, in an instance of the DSpace software managed by DRS. The software's internal access control mechanisms were adequate to ensure that depositing academics had access to the Collections within DSpace they needed, and assessors were also able to log in and access the appropriate Collections. In both cases, the lists had to be drawn up manually.
