State Library of Victoria

State Library of Victoria logo

The State Library Victoria is Australia's oldest public library and one of the first free public libraries in the world.  State Library Victoria is the place where all Victorians can discover, learn, create and connect.  We are a cultural and heritage destination for Victorians, and a catalyst for generating new knowledge and ideas.

The State Library is making a major contribution to the continuing development of a knowledge and creativity-based economy for Victoria, and a socially and culturally rich society.

The library provides access to many different eResources. Although you don't need your library card to access eResources whilst you are in the library building, it is essential for accessing them when you are at home.

If you are a Victoria 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.
