This section outlines techniques for checking and organising your reading lists to ensure they represent the diverse voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Contact the Librarian team for guidance or assistance to help you introduce more Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander resources into your reading lists.
Check the ethnicity of the authors when you are searching for relevant resources to add your reading lists. You can find this information by checking the authors':
Before the 1980s, most material contained stereotyped and generalised information. There are now many resources which have been written by, or in consultation with, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people/s. These resources often contain information about specific Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander groups, as a result illustrating the diversity and complexity of both cultural groups. Perhaps check characteristics (outlined below) of the resource and decide whether it is suitable to represent Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives.
Organise your reading lists into headed sections to make them easier to navigate and include links to book chapters and web pages.
