Abstract

This paper reports on the development of the Humanities Networked Infrastructure (HuNI), a service which aggregates data from thirty Australian data sources and makes them available for use by researchers across the humanities and creative arts, and more widely by the general public. We discuss the methods used by HuNI to aggregate data, as well as the conceptual framework which has shaped the design of HuNI's Data Model around six core entity types. Two of the key functions available to users of HuNI - building collections and creating links - are discussed, together with their design rationale.
