Help for Library users of ebook platforms available at the State Library
As of Monday 16 March 2020 our Library buildings are closed to the public due to the rapidly changing coronavirus (COVID-19) situation.
Our Ask A Librarian reference service is still available to assist with your research inquiries.
State Library Victoria provides free access to an extensive range of subscription databases, ejournals, ebooks and other eresources - in addition to digitised material from our own collections.
Ebooks complement our print collections. We collect across a wide range of subjects including social sciences, history, economics, literature, biography, sport and architecture.
All eresources can be accessed by anyone within the Library. If you are a registered State Library member with a verified Victorian address you can also read our ebooks anywhere, at any time, and download them to your own device to read offline. Loan periods are between 1-7 days.
