Resources from partner organisations have been sourced from leading Australian and New Zealand cultural and scientific institutions and private collections. These largely primary resource materials include: moving images from documentaries, feature films, newsreels and television programs; still images such as photographs, artworks, posters, maps, documents and cartoons; and sound files such as speeches, songs, radio broadcasts and interviews. Each resource comes with teachers' notes that provide educationally sound contextual information about the item.

Collections bring together up to 30 interactive, assessment and other resources with similar themes and subthemes drawn from the curriculum.
