An Important Milestone!
Assistive Technology Australia became the first non-EU member of EASTIN (European Assistive Technology Information Network) in 2016 September. On February 14 2017, the final step was taken. Our database/website is now connected to the EASTIN search portal, making @ magic searchable along with the EU databases. This has been an immense undertaking for both EASTIN and AT Aust. My heartfelt thanks to Dr Renzo Andrich (Italy), Dr Daniel Woo, Andy Muir, Andrea Agnoletto (Italy),the staff of AT Aust and the OT students who assisted during the ISO 9999 coding project.
