Cross KLA sites
A giant online library of digitised old and out of print books, with a searchable image library from the scanning, and word and phrase analysis.
Pretty quirky concept, but could be fascinating for older students, especially in the social sciences and history of technology.
An online resource which puts historical events in perspective.
This is a fabulous libguide from QUT with something for every KLA - dip in and have a look! You wont be disappointed - teacher sites, student sites, short video clips etc etc etc. It has a partner libguide for students.
“... a photographic time machine. It is a digital collection of tens of thousands of pictures from across the past…"
It has filters in place that let you browse according to collections, time etc And it’s not ALL US origin.
NSW GATS association. Resources, professional development etc.

New Internationalist magazine guide
An index to key themes and countries explored in New Internationalist magazine since 1984, this page guides users to over 13 000 online articles relating to
topics such as climate change, world poverty, human rights, Aborigines, gender, globalisation and corporate social responsibility. A selection of content is freely available online, with personal or institutional subscriptions facilitating greater access.
Back issues can also be previewed individually via the magazine archive. Extensive and up-to-date, this
site is easily navigated and has relevance for secondary students exploring issues relating to social justice, the environment, society and culture, and global issues.
It is a worthwhile companion to the magazine’s printed version, allowing searching across the sizeable database of online material. B. Kervin

However, for the geeks out there, the blog is worth a look if you're interested in how google searches for images and videos. Tells you how to optimise your own material so that google finds it!
