    Abstract

    The School of Education underwent a reaccreditation of the Bachelor of Teaching and Learning (Pre-service) in 2012, and the Head of School sought facilitation grant funds from the Charles Darwin University Office of Teaching and Learning to ensure the course was effectively incorporating Indigenous knowledge. This paper explores the embedding or increasing of Indigenous knowledge content in teacher education with particular focus on building an Incorporating Indigenous Knowledge LibGuide with library staff, academics and indigenous students. The LibGuide design offers multimedia access to Indigenous knowledge, culture and languages for the needs of academic teaching staff, and pre-service education students in one convenient location. � 2014 Australian Library & Information Association.
