For the past eighteen months, the eResearch Lab at the University of Queensland has been working with the Australian Literature community on the Aus-e-Lit project. Aus-e-Lit is a cross-disciplinary collaboration that is developing eResearch tools for scholars of Australian literature who are members of the AustLit consortium. The AustLit Web portal provides access to a comprehensive bibliographic and full-text collection that is considered the peak resource for scholars of Australian literary heritage. The portal also provides a mechanism for the dissemination and deployment of the eResearch services that we have developed and that are described in this paper. These include: text processing services, federated search services, annotation services, compound object authoring tools and advanced visualisation services.
