Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people should be aware that the collection contains images, voices, or names of deceased persons in photographs, audiovisual or printed material.
Material in the collection regarding First Nations peoples and cultures has historically been created and recorded by non-Indigenous people and may not have had the input of First Nations peoples themselves. As a result, this material may contain inaccuracies and misinterpretations, or words and descriptions which could be considered insensitive, outdated and/or offensive in today's context.
In recognising Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people's spiritual and cultural connection to Country, and in continuing ACU'S commitment to Reconciliation, we would like to acknowledge the First Peoples and Traditional Owners and custodians of the Country where ACU campuses are located.
We respectfully acknowledge our Elders, past and present, and thank them for their guidance as we walk in their footsteps.
The library has a collection of Indigenous resources that have been evaluated using the ACU Indigenous Evaluation Tool. This means that they are appropriate resources to use and embed in curriculum units.
To find these resources, you can search the First Peoples' Knowledges Collection or use the First Peoples' knowledges filter in Library search:
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, students and staff are advised that material in the Library may contain names and images of deceased Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
