NAIDOC WEEK JULY 4-11 1999 - New BIBLIOZ and New edition of Indigenous
Australia video catalogue

To celebrate 1999 NAIDOC (National Aboriginal and Islander Day of

new BIBLIOZ (Web bibliography on Australian screen topics) on the 1981
Australian road movie classic, Ned Lander's  "Wrong Side of the Road" which
features two Aboriginal bands, "No Fixed Address" and "Us Mob".  The "Wrong
Side of the Road" BIBLIOZ was compiled by RMIT University Department of
Communication Studies student, Jesse  Nonneman, and edited by AFI Client
Services Librarian, Aysen Mustafa.
