HuNI: Humanities Networked Infrastructure

Humanities Networked Infrastructure (HuNI) combines data from many Australian cultural websites into the biggest humanities and creative arts database ever assembled in Australia. HuNI data covers all disciplines and brings together information about the people, works, events, organisations and places that make up the country’s rich cultural landscape.

WHO IT’S FOR

  • Researchers studying the Arts, Culture, History and Entertainment.
  • All Australians.

WHAT IT DOES

  • Combines data from many Australian cultural websites into the biggest humanities and creative arts database ever assembled in Australia
  • Brings together information about the people, works, events, organisations and places that make up the country’s rich cultural landscape.

HuNI helped me to see the connections in my research topic with other areas, including theatre, design and fashion.
