Happy Australia Day!

G’day folks, I thought as it is Australia day I should highlight some of the Australian collection in the Official Publications Unit.
We have a small, in depth range of books from the Australian Government departments. These range from books from the National Library of Australia, the Australian National Gallery and Australian Museum. There is a series on the Historical Records of Australia from series 1 vol. 1, and a wealth of statistics from the mid 60s to the mid 80s from the Bureau of Statistics. We even have books and periodicals from the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation. There is also the Australian yearbook from 1980 onwards; the latest can be found in the reading room.
There is a book about the insects of Australia, although I am too scared to look at that one!
If you can’t find the books you are looking for remember to contact the Official Publications Unit.
