Australian Indigeous Studies Books
Huxley Indigenous Collection
The Huxley Indigenous Collection comprises of significant Indigenous works covering a range of subject areas specific to Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander people.
The collections exist to provide culturally appropriate material, at an academic level, relating to Indigenous Australians (including Torres Strait Islanders) focusing on aspects of social and economic conditions, government relations, education (in particular policy and history),health, history, social life and customs.
Some library material may be confidential or sensitive for Indigenous people and therefore may require certain restrictions on access.The Library endeavours to respect cultural sensitivities in providing access to Indigenous resources, in particular alerting Indigenous and Torres Strait Islanders to the presence of any images of deceased people.
All items have an Aboriginal flag either above the call number, or on the spine, and have the location in Newcat+ as Huxley-Indigenous Coll Book.
The collection is located along the wall to the right as you enter the CRMC from the main foyer area of the library. All materials are interfiled except for big books and big book kits which are shelved in a wire basket at the end of the collection (near the 999’s).
