ANU Library marks National Reconciliation Week

27 May 2020

We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the Land on which we stand.  We acknowledge the Ngunnawal and Ngambri peoples who are the traditional custodians of the Canberra area, and pay respect to Elders past, present and emerging.


This week is National Reconciliation Week – an opportunity for us all to learn more about our shared histories, cultures and achievements, and to explore how we can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.

The ANU Library has a significant collection of resources by, for and about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. To mark National Reconciliation Week, we will be highlighting a number of these resources on our website and social media platforms.

We are also pleased to announce that 29 new Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS) videos are now available via the ANU Library catalogue. These new streaming videos include 18 films that were sadly lost in the 2018 flood. Replacing these, and extending the film collection, represents a major contribution to work in the University.

So please, follow along on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram as we look through a selection of the Indigenous resources in our collection.

The Australian National University is marking this occasion with a number of events and by sharing stories from the ANU community. You can find out more on their National Reconciliation Week webpage.
