Australian Partnership for Sustainable Repositories
AustLit is a multi-institutional collaboration of academic researchers and librarians from 11 Australian universities and the National Library of Australia developing scholarly outcomes for research and teaching across a wide spectrum of Australian literary, theatrical and print culture activities from the late 18th century to the present. As a forum for scholarly communication, AustLit engages with new paradigms of digital publishing, data creation, sharing, storage and compilation through its distributed networked environment. Through AustLit researchers collaborate on a number of specialist and general projects, creating datasets and other scholarly outcomes for the education and research sectors. AustLit is arguably the most important resource for Australian literary research and teaching currently available and a demonstration of a successfully developed element of Australian humanities infrastructure which engages with contemporary possibilities in web-based, distributed resource building.
