Information on accessing English language testing materials
In line with the stage 3 restrictions announced by the Premier, State Library Victoria closed on Thursday 9 July.
We will advise when there is any update to this situation.
Our Ask A Librarian reference service is still available to assist with your research inquiries.
This guide explains what resources the State Library holds that can assist when learning English, and how to locate those items on our Library catalogue. The guide also identifies resources for English language tests such as IELTS.
Our holdings of other English proficiency tests are limited but there are alternative options.
See this page for a list of various proficiency tests and associated websites.
See our guide Finding items in languages other than English for advice on locating items in different languages on our catalogue.
As State Library Victoria is a research library, you cannot borrow material.
However if you live in Victoria and register for a Library membership you can access our online databases of journals, newspapers and ebooks from outside the Library.
Your Library membership barcode also enables you to order items to be brought out of storage.
