Australian Jazz Archive
Canberra is lucky to be the site for the main research collection on the history of jazz in Australia, the Australian Jazz Archive (AJA) and its sub-collection, the National Register of Australian Jazz Interviews. The AJA is held at the National Film & Sound Archive (NFSA), located near the ANU. It's a national institution which holds many items relating to the history of jazz in Australia: sound recordings, film, videos and oral histories. Here are some links to start your research if you wish to investigate the AJA further.
