Where can I find information about Indigenous Australians?

The National Library has a large range of Indigenous resources, many of which can be found on our online catalogue. Try searching with the words "aborigines australian" or "aboriginal australians" (include the quotation marks). You could also try the following resources:

 An excellent basic print reference on Aboriginal Studies is The Encyclopaedia of Aboriginal Australia. This is also available as a CD-ROM. You could also try Archaeology of the dreamtime : the story of prehistoric Australia and its people.

If you are unable to visit the Library, Trove can help you find and get items at libraries near you.
