They include Curtin University of Technology, La Trobe University, Flinders University, Monash University, University of New England, University of Sydney, Australia National University and the National Centre for South Asian Studies. The project has also been greatly assisted by the National Library of Australia.
The project has been coordinated by Curtin University of Technology and La Trobe University. Associate Professor John McGuire (Curtin) and Professor Robin Jeffrey (La Trobe) were responsible for the successful proposal and acted as Directors of the project.
The database was designed and compiled by Maggie Exon and Christine Richardson, Directors of the Information Retrieval Research Unit, School of Social Sciences and Asian Languages, Curtin University and by the Project Officer, Ian Dawes of the Library and Information Service, Curtin University.
The identification and collection of data was carried out by Anne Brennan, Senior Field Officer to the project; Miriam Allan, Jenny Bridge and Nima Flora, Field Officers to the project; and by staff of the National Library of Australia.
