The AERC holds a research reference collection of books for use by Higher Degree researchers and visiting scholars to the Centre. The current Reference Library received its original collections impetus from Alf and Dianne Long who made generous annual donations to the University of Queensland during the 1990s. During 2002-2005 they have directed these donations specifically to the Aboriginal Environments Research Centre within UQ. These grants were in turn used to consolidate the early collection.
The following bibliographic items make the current collection in this Reference Library. The items published with funds from Mr and Mrs Long have been identified with an asterisk.
