The Aboriginal Studies Electronic Data Archive (ASEDA) holds computer-based (digital) materials about Australian Indigenous studies collected from the late 80’s to early 2009 by the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS). The majority of items in ASEDA are about Australian Indigenous languages (dictionaries, grammars, teaching materials, etc.) AIATSIS distributes these materials on behalf of the depositor/provider of these materials. Availability of materials is subject to depositors/providers' access conditions and often requires permission from the depositor/provider. This catalogue describes items held by ASEDA.


It is a condition of use of this catalogue that users ensure that any disclosure of the information contained in this database is consistent with the views and sensitivities of relevant Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Users of this database should be aware that, in some Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, hearing and seeing of names of deceased persons may cause sadness or distress and in some cases offend against strongly held cultural prohibitions.

I have read and understand the warnings given above. I agree to treat this material with sensitivity being aware that it may contain words or descriptions which are not normally spoken of publicly. Having understood this, I wish to enter ASEDA.
