APO in conjunction with ANU Open Research is pleased to announce the digitisation of the complete collection of the ANU’s Urban Research Unit / Program Working Paper Series (1987-1999).

The digitisation of these 66 papers was undertaken by ANU Open Research at the ANU Library and by APO as part of the Linked Data II project, funded by the Australian Research Council.

Elke Dawson, Manager, Open Research at ANU, stressed the breadth and significance of the series coverage.

‘This important series covers national, state and local issues surrounding housing, the environmental quality of urban areas, social indicators, land policy, transport, infrastructure investment and planning and employment towards the end of the 20th century in Australia.’

The papers will add to APO’s Urban Policy & Practice Collection supported by Swinburne University of Technology and RMIT University, as well as APO’s Policy History Collection of pre-internet resources.

The series is now available at ANU Open Research and here on APO.
