Libraries Australia: a world of information

Can’t find that book on the State Library’s catalogue?  Try Libraries Australia.  It is a database of 40 million items in 800 Australian state, university, government, special and public libraries.  It lists books, journals, newspapers, photographs, maps, scores etc and their library location.  Libraries Australia is free and works like Google.  The excellent service is hosted by the National Library of Australia.

  1. Hi, just wanted to advise that from Thursday, Libraries Australia will no longer be free. Its free search service is available as our newly launched service, Trove. Librareis Australia remains the key workflow tool for subscribing members, but the National Library has merged the content in all of its free discovery services into Trove. In addition, it supports extensive annotation services. We welcome feedback on the new service at any time – just use the ‘contact us’ option. Regards, Debbie Campbell, National Library of Australia.
