Michele Turner collection:
This collection of books on East Timor, dedicated to the memory of Michele Turner (1952 – 1995), is housed separately from our main library. A Tasmanian author, Michele Turner became a close friend of the East Timorese people and spent ten years documenting their stories in her powerful book Telling: East Timor, Personal Testimonies 1942-1992. Michele’s work is characterised by her deep respect for human dignity in the face of brutal situations. The Michele Turner collection is an impressive documentary record of the history of East Timor and our sincere thanks go to Jennie Herrera who has played a significant role in compiling the collection. Download the Michele Turner Collection brochure with a full catalogue of resources in the collection.
Award winning teachers recommend our services:
“Since I discovered The Global Learning Resource Library it has become one of the first places I go to for resources and information when planning my lessons. The staff, the links, the range of posters, videos and books are all fantastic and help to bring my lessons alive.”

“The GLRL [A Fairer World] have provided me with SO much support over my time working at Rokeby High School! Without them, my students and I would not have been able to pull off two amazing concerts raising money for various charities. They constantly supported my students with their projects, connecting us with organisations, resources and their wealth of knowledge in ANY area my students wanted to make a difference in. THANKS GLRL!!”
