Library Services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Students: Aboriginal Biographies

Guide to the Library and its resources for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students at UON

Featured Aboriginal biographies


Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people should be aware that the biographical resources pages may contain images, voices or names of deceased persons in photographs, film, audio recordings or printed material.

Some material may contain terms that reflect authors’ views, or those of the period in which the item was written or recorded, but may not be considered appropriate today. These views are not necessarily the views of UON Library. While the information may not reflect current understanding, it is provided in an historical context.
