Search tips

Searches on the Hub

Searches on the Hub deal only with these things: title, summary, keywords, publisher and/or author.

Search queries are divided into terms and operators.

Terms

Terms come in two types: Single Terms and Phrases.

  • A Single Term is a single word such as 'scaffolding' or 'outdoor'.
  • A Phrase is a group of words surrounded by double quotes, eg "indoor play".

Operators

‘Boolean’ operators ('OR' and 'AND') allow several terms to be combined, to form a more complex query.

You must enter them using capital letters (eg, 'OR', not 'or' and 'AND', not 'and').

The OR operator

  • The OR operator is the default (assumed) operator. So, if you do not enter a Boolean operator between two terms, the OR operator will be used.
  • The OR operator links two search terms and finds matching resources if either of the terms exist in their title, summary, keywords, and listed publisher and/or author. For example, both of these searches will return the same result:

    "service management" leadership

    "service management" OR leadership

The AND operator

The AND operator matches items where both terms exist in their title, summary, keywords, and listed publisher and/or author. For example, the following will start a search for things on the Hub that contain "assessment" as well as "rating":

"assessment" AND "rating"

Australia's welfare 2019: In brief

This report from the AIHW provides a snapshot of national wellbeing to show how Australians are faring in key areas, including housing, education and skills, employment, social support and justice and safety. The report shows that record employment and an increase in education levels are contributing to Australia’s wellbeing but challenges facing the nation include housing stress among low-income earners. Generally, the higher a person’s level of education, the more opportunities they have in their working life.

“Everyone my age doesn’t know what it’s like”: A mixed-method study of young mothers and social support in Australia

This research examined how young Australian mothers (i) compared to older mothers in levels of social support and personal resources, and (ii) perceived and experienced the quality and type of social support available to them. Young mothers generally reported higher levels of social support, but poorer family relationships, and fewer personal resources (such as education and home ownership). This research suggests that being a mother outside the typical age range (25-34 years old) is challenging for both young and older mothers, but in different ways.
