Project Description

The Australian Dictionary of Biography Online Enhancement Project will augment the capabilities of the ADB Online. It will provide additional search categories and means of visualising the data in the dictionary's ten thousand biographical articles, enabling researchers to discover relationships, trends and developments, and thus to explore new themes and gain new insights into the nature of Australian history and society. The project will also develop the website's interoperability with resources provided by the National Library of Australia and other trusted institutions, making the ADB a key element in an evolving national information architecture supporting researc in the humanities and social sciences.
