Online resources for graduates: National, State and Public Libraries

National Library

The National Library of Australia (NLA) subscribes to a number of databases, accessible online from outside the library, including business, literature, arts, social science, health and multidisciplinary databases.

There are three levels of access to the National Library’s eResources:

  • Freely available – accessible to anyone online
  • Licensed resources – available to registered members who hold a NLA library card
  • Onsite resources – accessible in the NLA building only.

To make the most of the NLA online resources register and obtain a card.

State and Territory Libraries

State and Territory libraries provide a range of online resources. Access will vary from freely available, registered member access, and onsite only.

Check your state or territory library for full details and steps to become a member

Public Libraries

Public libraries provide a range of onsite and online resources and services to their local communities. Check with your nearest library for details.

Many will also offer an inter library loan service if they don’t hold the particular resources you require.
