Australian Women's Archives Project: Contains over 600 entries on Australian women from the twentieth century who came from different backgrounds and careers and rose to positions of prominence in Australia. The content includes biographies and referrals to other sources of information. It does not aim to be an exhaustive listing of women who exercised leadership in twentieth-century Australia, but rather offers a sampling across the very wide range of activities in which they rose to the fore as their opportunities expanded.
State Library of South Australia: This index contains many thousands of references to South Australian newspaper and magazine stories for the years 1837 to 1937. It also includes extensive selected text from the indexed publications, other primary and secondary sources and numerous extracts from Mr Manning's own writings. Notable publications (selectively) indexed include Adelaide Times, Advertiser, Chronicle, The Critic, Express & Telegraph, Frearson's Weekly, The Herald, Illustrated Adelaide Post, The Irish Harp, The Lantern, The Mail, The News, Observer, Register, SA Gazette & Mining Journal, and Southern Australian. The index is divided into the four folders: South Australia - includes coverage of a number of state level topics; Adelaide - includes a number of topics which predominately relate to the city and the metropolitan area as a whole; Port Adelaide; and Place Names of South Australia - an alphabetical list of South Australian place names (including suburbs of Adelaide). Biographical references are generally located on pages dealing with the place or activity with which a person is most associated. For example, several references to aviator Jimmy Melrose can be found in the entry for Melrose Park. Many Place Name pages have a list of obituaries of notable residents - generally at the bottom of the page or part of page dealing with the place.
