HuNI (Humanities Networked Infrastructure) is a major new digital service for humanities researchers. Developed in Australia, with funding from the NeCTAR (National eResearch Collaborative Tools and Resources) program, it aggregates data from 28 different cultural datasets from a variety of disciplines, makes them available for external re-use through an API and as Linked Open Data, and provides a set of tools for researchers to work with the data.
HuNI is a virtual laboratory application that will be of great value to anyone interested in understanding Australia’s rich cultural heritage. It is also the single largest aggregation of networked humanities data in Australia – a new national data service that is of cultural significance in its own right, and accessible to all. HuNI is planned to go into production in the second quarter of 2014.
