- Museum of Australian Democracy (MoAD), Old Parliament House in Canberra, is very pleased to announce that it is gradually putting its “open access” oral histories on-line in full. MoAD records and collects interviews relating to Australian parliamentary democracy, political party activism and the story of the Old Parliament House heritage building, which was home to Australia’s national parliament from 1927 to 1988. The first batch of on-line interviews include three legends of the Australian Parliamentary Press Gallery, the 1954 “Petrov Affair”, and a couple of others.

It promotes balanced consideration of Australian history by making contesting, evidence-based interpretations available to students, teachers, universities, journalists and the public. The aim is to bring together material, existing and new, which presents key themes of Australia’s past, help explain why Australia is as it is today, and assist readers to consider the building blocks of our future.

- Labour History Referencing. Labour History has a new referencing style. Not only have we shifted from endnotes to footnotes, we have adopted the Chicago style of referencing. Our online style guide has been updated to reflect this change.
