Following discussions with the Department of Innovation (DIISR) the
Council of Australian University Librarians (CAUL) Executive, and the
ARROW Management Committee, CAUL is establishing the CAUL Australian
Institutional Repository Support Service (CAIRSS), to provide support
for all institutional repositories in Australian universities,
regardless of the software being used. CAIRSS will be overseen by
CAUL and is funded by the residue of the ARROW funds plus the annual
Australasian Digital Theses Program (ADT) contribution to provide
support beyond the end of 2008 over a two/three year period.

CAUL has appointed the University of Southern Queensland, through the
Australian Digital Futures Institute (ADFI) within the Division of
Academic Information Services (DAIS) to undertake its new
institutional repository support service. The service will commence
officially on March 16, 2009. (10/3/09)
