Welcome to the blog of  Design & Art Australia Online.

Design & Art Australia Online is a new collaborative e-Research database site built upon the foundations of the Dictionary of Australian Artists Online. We are free to use, free to join, and looking for public participation to help us grow.  Join our growing community of active research contributors.

We spent 2011-13 building and refining the site, and working toward sustainably integrating DAAO with significant and complementary datasets nationally.

In 2014 we will be undergoing further development under our 5th LIEF grant, LE140100120 ’Design & Art Australia Online Research Tool: enabling next generation e-Research in Australia’s visual and design cultures’.

Here we will be posting news, announcements  and general updates about the site and the project. We’d also love to hear what’s working for you and what you want more of!

Feel free to post, comment, hashtag your twitter feeds #daao_aust or feed your good delicious tags our way. Tag ‘DAAO’ or ‘digitalhumanities’.
