State Library of Western Australia

State Library of Western Australia logo

The State Library of Western Australia’s fundamental mission is to support the community in its learning, recreation and information needs and to collect and treasure West Australia's history for future generations.

Our connection with the past is built on documentary, visual and oral heritage which, when preserved, create an archive which helps tell the social, political, economic and cultural history of Western Australia.  

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 Western Australia 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.
