National Library of Australia

The National Library is one of several agencies within the the Department of Communications and the Arts.

The Library’s role, as defined by the National Library of Australia Act 1960, is to ensure that documentary resources of national significance relating to Australia and the Australian people, as well as significant non-Australian library materials, are collected, preserved and made accessible either through the Library itself or through collaborative arrangements with other libraries and information providers.

By offering a strong national focus in all that we do, and cooperating with others who share our goals, we support learning, creative and intellectual endeavour, and contribute to the continuing vitality of Australia’s diverse culture and heritage.

The Library's events programs aim to enhance learning, knowledge creation, enjoyment and understanding of Australian life and society, through access to a national collection relating to Australia and the Australian people.
