University of Melbourne, Australian Science and Technology Heritage Centre
On 3 May 1999 the Council of the University of Melbourne declared the formation of the Australian Science and Technology Heritage Centre (Austehc) in the Faculty of Arts. Austehc will continue the academic, research and heritage activities of the Australian Science Archives Project (ASAP) which was established by Professor R.W. Home in 1985. The Centre will encompass ASAP's original objectives and continue to develop new programs that foster the preservation, promotion and development of the heritage of Australian science, technology and medicine. ASAP's popular online information resources, notably Bright Sparcs, form the key focus of the Centre's activities.
