Design and Art Australia Online (DAAO) is a collaborative e-Research tool built upon the foundations of the Dictionary of Australian Artists Online. DAAO is an open source freely accessible scholarly e-Research tool that links biographical data about Australian artists, designers, craftspeople and curators with information about artworks, event histories and collection details.
A framework of open access intellectual property rights is an underlying principle of DAAO. We are committed to sharing information and collaborative research. We welcome all committed researchers, be they academics, artists, family historians or non-affiliated researchers, to engage in the principles of public scholarly research by contributing to DAAO’s growing database.
