Abstract

E-Research refers to large-scale, distributed, information-intensive forms of inquiry conducted collaboratively between institutions, and intra- and inter-nationally. The paper details the strategies that the Information Division (ID) is implementing to support eresearch and information management within the University. The culture at the University of Melbourne emphasises a client-focused approach where the ID staff partner with academic departments and business units to assemble suitable project teams to translate the vision into technical solutions. The paper will explore ID initiatives which support e-research and information management using new technologies which emphasise interoperability and flexibility.
