In response to a focus on reading, this paper examines the notion of reading online; as such it uses the term 'networked reading' to describe any act of reading in an online or digital environment. In accordance with this notion of 'networked' reading, the paper provides a broad introduction to AustLit: the Australian Literature Resource. This is followed by an examination of a suite of services and digital tools (LORE) developed by the Aus-e-Lit project that extends the scope of AustLit records and facilitates links to external resources. The focus of the final section of the paper is on a collection of full-text resources located within the AustLit subset Children's Literature Digital Resources (CLDR). It proposes a number of ways in which these texts, and an accompanying anthology of critical articles, can be utilised in classrooms across the primary, middle and senior school spectrum.
