NEWS:  CAIRSS Central is delighted to launch the new CAIRSS website (21/4/09)
The primary function of CAIRSS (CAUL Australian Institutional Repository Support Service) is to offer support for Repository Managers in the higher education sector in Australia.  This website will be the central hub for this activity.

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. (approved by CAUL 2009/2, September, 2008)
