The resource has been added to your collection
Covering the history of Australia's Federation period, this National Library of Australia site includes both primary and secondary research resources. The site has a concise chronology section with several valuable embedded links and a resources section that helps users find online information about the period as well as giving recommendations for text, maps, film and other resources. The exhibition section (which is still under construction) promises to be populated in the near future with two exhibits -- Federation: A Slice of Life, an exploration of the period which includes sections entitled The Medical Experience, Fashion, and Invitations & Events, and a second exhibit, Belonging, created by the State Library of Victoria, State Library of New South Wales, National Archives of Australia, and the National Library of Australia. The section of the site called people includes biographical materials and photos because . . . "Federation was brought about by the efforts of many people -- politicians, poets, journalists, workers -- despite the opposition of an articulate minority." A very useful links section rounds out the site nicely.
