Home - Trove - 5 views

  •  
    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".

    Loved that showing this to my students meant I could show them that their small town of Kyabram is mentioned in National Library sources.

    The Study Vibe site is designed for students to encourage then to develop skills in many facets of study and research. It is the brainchild of Leonie McIvenny, a Western Australian teacher librarian.

Instapaper - 0 views

    Instapaper is a very useful service where you can save articles from the web. It will remove advertisements and other distractions, giving you a nice clean version of the article. You can also install an app on your mobile so you can read articles on the move, even when you don't have an internet connection.
