Humanities Networked Infrastructure (HuNI) Virtual Laboratory : Discover | Analyse | Share

The Humanities Networked Infrastructure virtual laboratory has been designed to meet the resource discovery needs of Australian humanities researchers and to support data processing and collaboration. This presentation is will explain to the audience what is “under the bonnet” in the HuNI virtual lab; the technology choices, design features, tools, and the capacity for extensibility and interoperability that has been built into the design.

The lab design supports the move away from data silos and into an era where it was possible to search across related datasets, to share data and reuse other researcher’s data or reference datasets, and to collaborate. The lab search and browse function and information design supports researchers’ information seeking needs (reusing components from several ontologies, translating data into RDF/XML and creating linked data); and the lab platform, “plumbing” and workspace functions and technical design supports researcher data capture, storage and processing needs (reusing OpenSocial, JOAI servers, OAI-PMH protocols, and cloud services).
