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

All of the content from the old Library website is still available, but it may be linked from a new heading or area:

The website is now grouped by type of user – students, researchers, or teaching staff. The most popular options are shown on the front page, and each section has a ‘More…’ link which will take you to the complete page of research tools and services which are most useful for you.

Subject Guides (research by topic area) – is now linked from ‘Journals’ (the first option under Students) or ‘Articles by subject’ on the full page.

The options to search for a specific journal name’s or a database have been moved to the full Students page listing and called ‘Search for a journal’ & ‘Find a Database.’ This is because fewer people need those links every time they visit the Library page, and first-time researchers often tried to search for their topic in the journal name search box. You can also find links to journals and databases by searching the Library Catalogue.

Please let us know if you have any suggestions for improving the new page.
