Aboriginal Advisory Group: Expressions of Interest

Natural fibres woven into a circular mat. Earthy colours used in the mat. Background deep rust red.

In late 2019 two of the Territory’s major collecting institutions, the Northern Territory Library and Northern Territory Archives Service joined forces to create a new organisation - Library & Archives NT – with the continuing aim to collect, preserve and share our rich and unique history and to support the Territory’s public library network.

We are re-establishing the Aboriginal Advisory Group previously operated by the NT Archives Service. This Group will focus on facilitating access to NT Government records for Aboriginal people, particularly those undertaking Stolen Generations family history research, but will also provide advice to Library & Archives NT on other matters relating to our collections, services and programs.

We are currently seeking two community members to join this Group, one from the Top End and one from Central Australia. Participation by video-conference is supported, and membership of the group is for a three year term.
