We have provided a number of User Guides for using the Atlas of Living Australia.
These guides show you through some of the functions of the ALA. They can be used by anyone wishing to use the ALA, and are suitable for people using it in primary and high school classrooms.
The appropriate guide can also be accessed directly from the individual classroom activities so you can easily alter the activities to suit your local area if necessary.
