Eresources collection

We’re able to move beyond the physical walls of the Library by providing an eresources collection that can be used wherever you are, whenever you need.

We’re committed to delivering free access to an eresources collection that is current, relevant and complements the Library's physical collections.

We provide access to an extensive range of eresources, including:

  • local and international newspapers
  • full text journals
  • databases
  • ebooks
  • magazines
  • digital images from our unique heritage collections.

The eresources collection covers a wide range of subjects, including:

  • family history
  • health
  • history and biography
  • humanities
  • literature and language
  • science and technology.

Before we subscribe to a new eresource, we often conduct a trial and evaluate the eresource to ensure that it meets the needs of the people of New South Wales. We then review each eresource annually to make sure the collection remains relevant.

A range of multicultural eresources are available, including:

  • Multicultural magazines and Newspapers

Using the collection

You can access over 80% of the eresources collection from anywhere, anytime if you're a New South Wales resident. You just need a Library card or a registered NSW public library card from a participating library.

If you’re not a resident of NSW, you can access the eresources collection when you’re at the Library.
