Join us for an event showcasing the recent initiative by the Australian Dictionary of Biography to commission articles for over 1500 Australian women of the colonial period. The National Library collection and other archive agencies hold much of the source material for the project.  Hear from Professor Melanie Nolan, Director of the National Centre of Biography to learn more about the project, the people and how you can nominate women for the project.

Light lunch from 12 noon.
