About the Behind the Scenes blog

Who we are and what we do

The Behind the Scenes Blog offers a glimpse into our daily work, projects and activities at the National Library of Australia. There are many staff who are privileged to work with the Library’s vast collections. Some of us are involved directly with selecting new items for the collection, describing, preserving and digitising items to make them available for use. We answer reference inquiries using the rich resources in the Library’s collection. We promote and interpret items from the collection in exhibitions and in the Library’s own publications. This blog aims to give you a sense of the hustle and bustle behind the scenes - our routine work as well as new projects and activities.
