Biographies

The National Library of Australia is the country's largest reference library. Our role 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, the Library contributes to the continuing vitality of Australia’s culture and heritage

We are responsible under the terms of the National Library Act for maintaining and developing a national collection of library material, including a comprehensive collection of library material relating to Australia and the Australian people. The Library collects Australian materials of all kinds including: books, ephemera, electronic resources, manuscripts, maps, music, newspapers, oral histories, performing arts, pictures and serials.

The Library's collections of Australiana have developed into the nation's single most important resource of materials recording the Australian cultural heritage.

The Library also has considerable collections of general overseas and rare book materials, as well as world-class Asian and Pacific collections which augment the Australiana collections.
