The Australian Literature Resource
The Federated Search was developed as part of the Aus-e-Lit Project to provide a snapshot of results from accessible external databases. The Federated Search is currently set as a default, but you can deactivate the search by deselecting the Federated checkbox under QUICK SEARCH. Your computer will remember your preference and this preference will remain set for future sessions.
In addition to AustLit works and agents, the Federated Search returns results from the following online data sources. As databases become more accessible and searchable, additional relevant targets will be added to the Federated Search.
The Federated Search includes results from AustLit's full text collections. See the about full text page for information about the included collections.
