The National Library of Australia’s role is to ensure that documentary resources of national significance relating to Australia and the Australian people, as well as significant non-Australian library materials, are collected, preserved and made accessible either through the Library itself or through collaborative arrangements with other libraries and information providers.
By offering a strong national focus in all that we do, and cooperating with others who share our goals, we support learning, creative and intellectual endeavour, and contribute to the continuing vitality of Australia’s diverse culture and heritage.
The library provides access to many different eresources. Although you don't need to be library member to access eresources whilst you are in the library building, it is essential for accessing them when you are at home.
If you are an Australian resident and would like to access eresources from home, you will need to become a library member. Register online to have your membership information posted to you or visit the library and collect your library card in person.
