Library Services are delivered through a network of libraries located across the state. Our libraries exist primarily to support the Department's staff in the conduct of their official business.
Services available to members of the public
Members of the public are welcome to use our libraries for reference use only. Licensing arrangements do not allow public access to databases for which the libraries pay a subscription fee.
Direct borrowing from our libraries is not permitted. Please contact your public, university or corporate library to arrange an interlibrary loan for any items you wish to borrow. Fees and conditions may apply at these libraries.
Photocopying is available but a charge may apply.
For library support, students should contact their own school, university, institute or college library in the first instance.
You can search our library holdings on Trove at the National Library of Australia.
