Getting to know Antarctica
Australian Antarctic Division library
The library at Australian Antarctic Division headquarters at Kingston has a comprehensive collection of polar material. The books that appear in the reading lists on the following pages are available in the library and should also be available in the larger Australian libraries. Most are available in the station libraries.
This website has extensive information relating to the work (science and operations) at the Antarctic and subantarctic stations, and how your expeditioner is spending their time. The search bar in the right hand corner is very effective (spelling needs to be accurate) and some handy links appear below.
