About the Cultures and Community Project

Coordinated by eRSA in collaboration with Griffith University, VicNode (UoM), Tasmanian Archives and Heritage Office, Queensland State Archives and other participating institutions, the Cultures & Communities (C&C) project is as part of a national project to provide research support to the Cultures and Communities sector.

The project aims were to: 

  • Deliver a data-sharing API
  • Build a Digital Humanities network
  • Encourage community participation
  • Provide a consolidated and sustainable user support service

For more information about the project and API, view our poster here or read the full paper on Enabling better data discovery of records across archives, institutions and libraries here.

The project successfully delivered the API and promoted its use widely to researchers and colleague organisations in the C&C research communities. For more information on the outcomes of the project, please see the Extracts from the Project Completion Report here.
