I came across this by accident, but it is an interesting development that UTAS is leading. There has been quite a bit of talk about the role of the Library in curating eScience research data, I am curious as to whether anyone at UTAS Library has heard of this project?

"The BlueNet project will establish a national distributed marine science data network linking universities to the AODCJF, to support the long term data curation requirements, and data access needs of Australia’s marine science researchers.

BlueNet will build infrastructure to enable the discovery, access and online integration of multi-disciplinary marine science data on a very large scale, to support current and future marine science and climate change research, ecosystem management and government decision making."

Di Worth and I know about BlueNet - and I think Di has had a chat with Kate Roberts who is the director. Di & I knew Kate when she was involved in the original AARLIN project.

Good to know someone is keeping up with what's happening!
It sounds like an interesting project, one to keep an eye on I think.
