Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Resources

This LibGuide provides a starting point for finding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander library materials, resources and subject guides

Cultural Notice

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people should be aware that this guide may contain records and online resources of images, voices or names of deceased persons in photographs, film, audio recordings or print materials.

Some material may contain terms that reflect authors’ views, or those of the period in which the item was written or recorded, but may not be considered appropriate today and cause offence. These views are not necessarily the views of the University Library.  While the information may not reflect current understanding, it is provided in an historical context.

Access and use to some works held by the University Library, particularly those containing secret sacred material or other sensitive material, may be restricted.

Throughout this LibGuide the terms Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and Indigenous are used  interchangeably. Some of the contributors also use the term First Nations in relation to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Informing the library of culturally sensitive materials

The University Library takes cultural safety seriously. If you come across material that is culturally sensitive but needs further consideration around restrictions or access conditions you can inform the library.

To make an enquiry, or to inform the library of your concern, please visit the additional support page in this guide and email your contact details.
