[From Peter Suber's Open Access News ]

The Australian government gave a network of institutions $12 million to
improve Australia's research infrastructure.
Four major projects will share the funds: (1) Meta Access Management
System Project (MAMS), (2) Towards an Australian Partnership for
Sustainable Repositories (APSR), (3) The Australian Research Repositories
Online to the World (ARROW), and (4) Australian Digital Theses Program
Expansion and Redevelopment (ADT). All four, but especially the last
three, will greatly accelerate the implementation of open access in
Australia. Kudos to the visionary Australian Department for Education,
Science and Training, which awarded the grant.
