Today would be the 80th birthday of Eddie Koiki Mabo the man who our Townsville campus library is named after.

The library staff were extremely excited this morning to see that Google has released a Google Doodle to commemorate Mr Mabo's birthday. We hope that Google's users click on this image today to find out more about Mr Mabo and his contribution to the world.

And fittingly today is also the United Nations' International Day of the Tropics and Eddie Koiki Mabo's homeland of Mer (Murray) Island in the Torres Straits is located firmly in this region.
