Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander resources

Please note

Cultural advice

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people should be aware that items in the QUT Library collection may contain images, names and voices of people who have died.

All people are advised that there may be words and descriptions that include offensive and derogatory terms that are unacceptable. The QUT Library collection contains materials that are based on non-Indigenous interpretations, observations and records of First Nations Peoples' behaviours, actions, comments and traditions that privilege western paradigms and that can therefore be problematic. These sources often lack the viewpoints of the people they discuss and depict, and can contain ideas based on outdated scientific theories.

This search displays a selection of items in the Library about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

The search includes selected:

  • books and ebooks
  • journals (note this search does not find articles - use the Library Search to search for articles about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples)
  • videos
  • music and audio recordings
  • theses.

We welcome your suggestions to build this collection.
