I am currently doing a literature review for a research proposal and need to find sources for my topic which is education and Aboriginal children and young people in care. Can I get assistance with finding these?

Hi Ruth,

There will be quite a few resources out there for you on this topic I would imagine.

Informit Complete is an Australian database with strong holdings in this area - http://find.lib.uts.edu.au/?R=OPAC_b2562948

A large interdisciplinary database like Proquest would be useful also as it contains PHD theses as well as journal articles and conference material - http://find.lib.uts.edu.au/?R=OPAC_b2748546

For books our catalogue will be a good starting point, but if you really want to expand your range of books and also search for australian theses then trove will definitely assist you - http://trove.nla.gov.au/

Finally Google Scholar is a very rich resource for this type of search - http://scholar.google.com.au.ezproxy.lib.uts.edu.au/

Take a look at those as your first port of call and if you need to further extend or refine your search do contact me directly or reply to this ticket

Thanks!
