Australia's humanities, arts and social science researchers are recognised internationally for delivering solutions to challenging questions facing society and for bringing their expertise to bear on complex issues in health, the environment, social cohesion and security. Their work encompasses law, society, education, identity, economics, business, governance, history, culture, language and creativity. Their fields link universities, government agencies, collecting institutions and the creative industries. The humanities, arts and social sciences disciplines, which underpin culture and community research, hold many datasets which form important parts of our cultural heritage. The datasets are typically heterogeneous, but capable of being linked or connected.
