Cultural Advice

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people should be aware that this website contains names, images, and voices of deceased persons.

In addition, some articles contain terms or views that were acceptable within mainstream Australian culture in the period in which they were written, but may no longer be considered appropriate.

These articles do not necessarily reflect the views of The Australian National University.

Older articles are being reviewed with a view to bringing them into line with contemporary values but the original text will remain available for historical context.

Digitised Biographies

Tuesday 28 August 2012

The National Centre of Biography is committed to digitising out-of-copyright compedias of Australian biography and making them freely available through the NCB's website. The individual entries in the books will also be added to one of our biographical websites.  

If you would like to help us with this project by letting us know about suitable titles to digitise or by correcting the digitised text please email us at
