- Kanopy – Streamable audiovisual content
- ClickView – Streamable audiovisual content.
- BlackWords – Covers all forms of creative writing, film, television, criticism and scholarship, both by and about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander writers, and literary and storytelling cultures.
- Informit Indigenous Collection – Find specialist journals, conference papers, reports, magazines, eBooks and grey literature unavailable elsewhere online. Some full-text available.
- Ask us anything: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people – This YouTube video by University of Sydney provides a great representation of some of the unconscious bias/racism Aboriginal people face.
- Australian Indigenous Studies Library Guide, Australian Indigenous Health Library Guide, and Library Services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Students.
The University Library acknowledges the traditional Aboriginal owners of the lands within our footprint areas: Awabakal Nation, Darkinung Nation, Biripai Nation, Worimi Nation, and Wonnarua Nation.
We also pay respect to the wisdom of our Elders past and present.
