The Ask a Librarian Service will be unavailable on Monday 6 February between 8 and 10 am for a scheduled upgrade.
This virtual excursion focuses on the experience of convicts on the First Fleet and the early years in the colony. Using primary sources from State Library collections, students will investigate the journey of the First Fleet, the everyday life of convicts and touch on the experiences of Aboriginal people.
