On Anzac Day, the 25th April, we pay tribute to and remember those who have served. Anzac Day is one of Australia’s most important national occasions, marking the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.
This year we commemorate the Centenary of the First World War (1914-1918).
To help understand the Australian experience of war, the Australian War Memorial website provides information about Anzac Day and the Memorial’s commemoration projects for the Centenary of the First World War.
QUT Library also has a wide range of resources available for learning more about Anzac Day and the First World War. The following books and videos are highly recommended:
- The Great War by Les Carlyon
- Victory at Villers-Bretonneux by Peter Fitzsimons
- Australia at War 1914-1918
- Centenary of ANZAC: Albany Commemoration
We will be open on Anzac Day, Wednesday 25th April. Our library website provides more details on our opening hours.
