State Library of NSW

The State Library of NSW is the oldest library in Australia. The Library’s extraordinary collections document the heritage of Australia and Oceania and are one of the State’s most valuable assets. By building, preserving and delivering its collections, including today’s born digital materials, the Library enables Australians to interrogate our past, understand our present and imagine our future.
