Brief description The project will significantly upgrade Australian Policy Online (http://www.apo.org.au), a Swinburne-based online archive of social science research from over ninety centres, institutes and departments, to create a national, searchable electronic gateway for academic researchers, librarians, public servants, journalists and students. The project will: -deepen the APO archive by adding key reports from the past five years; -establish thematic resource pages on key policy-oriented research projects, providing previously inaccessible primary and secondary material online; -upgrade the accessibility and searchability of APO by improving our metadata protocol; -broaden our membership; and -incorporate archival material from several new sources.
