Koori Mail delivers for online research

Interesting timing that just when the digitisation program of AIATSIS (which is part of its legislated function of collecting, preserving and making accessible its collections) got defunded and the organisation had to go into the red with its budget to extend the program for another six months, this wonderful resource has become available. I'm talking about the Koori Mail, an icon of the news media for Indigenous Australians. Twenty years worth of the publication encompassing 35,000 pages have been digitised, thus enabling searching on personal names, subjects, clan names, etc. This is bound to be a great resource for Indigenous Australians and those doing research on Indigenous Australia. To start searching stories on your mob follow the link.
