Informit is a large collection of databases covering many different subjects and disciplines. The focus is on Australian publications, but there is a large amount of material relating to New Zealand and Pacific studies.
We currently have a trial of these collections.
Families & Society
Covers family, marriage, women; culture and institutions, private, civil and family law; social services and public welfare. Content includes peer-reviewed journals from government and specialist associations tackling modern debates on topics including non-traditional families, parenting, marriage, divorce, division of labour, working mothers, birth rates and ageing.
Content includes research articles, reports and case studies of practical support to anyone studying or working in therapeutic, diagnostic and preventative health roles. Many titles included in the Collection are unavailable elsewhere online, including journals dedicated to specialist and current topics of interest such as ageing and age care, child health and breastfeeding, indigenous health issues, mental health and rehabilitation.
Humanities & Social Sciences
Covers agriculture, arts, Asian studies, business, cultural studies, education, history, indigenous studies, law, media, political science, reference, social sciences, science and technology. Content sources include peer reviewed journals, monographs and books, conference proceedings, research papers and reference materials sourced and indexed by RMIT Publishing.
With a broad range of international Indigenous research resources brought together, the Informit Indigenous Collection offers a variety of content on both historical and topical issues within Indigenous studies. Readily available, the multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary framework encompasses anthropology, community development, cultural studies, economics, education, health, history, human geography, law and land rights, literature, politics and policymaking, (post)colonial studies, psychology, race studies, sociology and visual and performing arts.
New Zealand Collection
Informit New Zealand Collection provides cover-to-cover access to core research published in, and relating to, New Zealand. This multidisciplinary resource will benefit anyone looking for unique content which offers a regional perspective. Content is comprehensively indexed and can be searched or browsed – title by title.
We would like to hear your views about these collections. Would they be useful for your research or teaching?
The trial period runs until 15 August.
