The Library is closed onsite, open online. See updates here.

The new catalogue is nearly here

With your help, we have been developing and testing the new catalogue for the past two years. We have analysed your feedback and improved the way you can search it and the way it displays images, sound files and books. 

Now, we are just a week away from making the switch to our new catalogue. 

To help with the transition, we encourage you to start using the new catalogue now for all your State Library reading, researching and referencing needs. 


If you have any questions or comments about the catalogue, you can send them to us through the 'feedback' link at the top of every page. 

For any questions about searching and using the collection, a ‘help’ link can also be found at the top of every page. 

Even after we move to the new catalogue, you will still be able to access the old catalogue. Your saved searches and bookmarks in the old catalogue will be retained.  

Sometimes your search may take you back to the old catalogue. We appreciate your patience while we complete the task of updating redirects.
