    The Australian Bureau of Statistics publishers 'Year Book Australia' a useful source of Australian Statistical Information as well as information about the Australian Government. Excellent site to refer to students. If you prefer the print version, Year Book Australia should be available at your local public library.

    'Developed by Education Services Australia through The Le@rning Federation, the education collection is designed to help teachers and students make the most of the wide range of moving image resources on the site. The clips in this collection are accompanied by teachers' notes created by specialist curriculum writers. Expert curators' notes also provide useful background material.' Clips are organised under headings such as 'war', 'identity and culture', 'sport and health'...a treasure trove!

    A great site for those of you who are interested in what your local member of Parliament is up to. Could be useful if you are pushing an issue on behalf of your organisation, sector or the public good. Searches Hansard to find out what your representative is doing or search on a topic; this site makes Hansard accessible in a way that actually searching Hansard does not!

    Yay for transparency!

    Another excellent example of the power that digitising provides. Thanks for posting Agus, I've marked Assignment 2 as complete on Lore for you.

    Trove is a discovery experience focused on Australia and Australians. It supplements what search engines provide. If you are researching in the fields of the social sciences, literature, local or family history, or need inspiration for your school assignment, then this is the tool for you. It is the most amazing FREE site and I use it to find so many things "Australian".
