LAAL (Living Archive of Aboriginal Languages) is a digital archive of endangered literature in Australian languages from the Northern Territory. Much of the literature is language teaching/literacy material created in schools, which is otherwise endangered by the instability of governmental support for mother tongue and bilingual programs. You can search the site by map, placename, language name, author, or category (such as Narrative or Language instruction). The literature materials are beautifully displayed and are viewable and downloadable as PDF or plain text. The site currently holds about 2250 books in 32 languages. Updates are posted on http://laal.cdu.edu.au/

A detailed catalogue of Aboriginal language groups from Tindale’s 1974 book Aboriginal Tribes of Australia. Information on locations, alternatives names, colonial/historical sources, and more. The catalogue is also an index to Tindale’s Tribal Boundaries Map. The SA Museum’s caution that the "catalogue represents Tindale’s attempt to depict Aboriginal tribal distribution at the time of European contact" is itself highly problematic.
