As many of you know, DAAO is partner in the successful bid by the Cultural Datasets Consortium to build the first virtual laboratory for humanities e-research in Australia: the HuNI project, (federally funded through NeCTAR (National eResearch Collaboration Tools and Resources).

Conal Tuoey, the project’s technical co-ordinator who oversees the development and implementation of the HuNI VL technical infrastructure has just posted a very user friendly explanation of what the HuNI project is doing with all our data and what ‘linked data’ actually means. Some data sets such as Australian Dictionary of Biography and Australian Women’s register have already been linked. DAAO is next on the list!
