Library Webs present users with an extensive Internet library which contains primary sources, reliable websites from educational, government and commercial establishments, radio and television transcripts, newspaper and magazine articles. The topics are arranged according to the Dewey Decimal Classification system familiar to most Australian school students. In some cases the same topics appear in different sections because the material overlaps, for example, Rural Australia appears in both the Social Science category and the Geography category.
The Echo's information content is drawn from newspapers and the Internet.
Echo selectively indexes three major Australian newspapers and provides a searchable index on-line.
Echo also publishes regular issue outlines. These are analyses of newspaper treatment of events, controversies etc. The outlines set out the arguments for and against (as put forward by journalists and commentators) and provide background information on the particular issue.
The issue outlines also contain links to vetted, relevant documents and sites on the World Wide Web.
