The National Library participates in a variety of social media. Each network has its own particular uses.
- Behind the scenes blog where you can find out how we collect, digitise and preserve our material.
- The eloquent page the National Library of Australia's fringe publishing blog.
- Australia’s Web Archives, covering our web archiving project, PANDORA.
The Library uses our Twitter account to notify of news, relevant items from our collection and events. Trove, a discovery experience focused on Australia and Australians also has a Twitter account. It focuses on items exposed by this discovery service.
The Library uses our Facebook account to let you know about major events, activities and recent acquisitions. We post photos, videos and links to resources about the Library.
YouTube hosts videos of many of the events held at the Library, behind the scenes interviews for many of our publications and of course our famous Christmas party dance routines.
The Library records many of the talks and presentations held here. We make these available as podcasts available in nine categories so you can listen to them any time you like.
The National Library is a member of The Commons on Flickr.
Images from the Library’s collection that are part of The Commons have 'no known copyright restrictions', which means the Library is unaware of any current copyright restrictions on these works. This can be because the term of copyright for these works may have expired or that the copyright was held and waived by the National Library of Australia. A growing selection of images with no known copyright restrictions are being made available for public download through the National Library of Australia Commons on Flickr.
