eScholarshipUQ is currently investigating the feasibility of local harvesting of born digital and digitised UQ research material as part of its testbed program for the Australian Partnership for Sustainable Repositories.
Much valuable UQ research output is either hidden or poorly indexed. eScholarshipUQ will expose such research via the UQ eSpace institutional digital repository, which can be readily searched or browsed.
The metadata will also be harvested and exposed by national and internal gateways and search engines.
