Rolling Stone Katy Perry

Did you know that the Library holds many items other than general text books?  In fact, we hold a wide range of more specialised books and journals on topics such as gardening, interior design and music. One such magazine is Rolling Stone. The Library subscribes to the online version back to 1990 and we hold the latest four months of print copies on the Current Journals Display on Level C.

So, take a well-earned break from study and get a fix of this classic mag!!

Stories of the Ngunnawal

Each year Australia celebrates and builds on the respectful relationships shared between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians. It provides us all with the opportunity to explore the various ways we can join together in a national effort at reconciliation.

Why not use this opportunity to explore the Library’s collection of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander resources.

Browse through Stories of the Ngunnawal  or Mununja the butterfly: a Ngunawal Aboriginal story and learn about the Aboriginal people living in and around the Canberra region.

Visit our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Subject guide to find journal articles, dictionaries and web resources available through the Library.

Warning   Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders are warned that content on this site may contain images and references to deceased persons

For more information or help in using this search service, please see our  search trial FAQ.

If you have any feedback regarding this search service trial, please send it through our feedback form.
