Who Can Use eResources?

This service is for use by individuals for private research and study purposes, in adherence with the fair dealing provisions of the Copyright Act 1968 and the use provisions in our licence agreements. All users are required to agree to the National Library's terms and conditions of access. This service is designed to supplement the electronic resources that people can access through the public, State, tertiary and corporate libraries available to them. If you have registered with the National Library of Australia, you can access many resources by logging in with the Library User ID that is noted on your library card, and your surname, wherever you have an Internet connection within Australia. The resources that are designated as "Onsite" are restricted for use inside the National Library building.

How do I use the NLA eResources portal?



How do I find a specific resource?

A small number of our databases are not indexed in the eResources portal. You can search for a specific resource using the Browse eResources tab found on the portal's homepage. Within the Browse eResources tab you can search for a specific database by title, part title, first letter of the title, or by keyword. You can also browse the full A-Z list of our databases or browse by first letter of the title, by access conditions or by topic.

Having difficulty connecting to databases from off site?

1. Are you a registered National Library of Australia user? To access Licenced Resources with the gold key symbol you must be a registered user. To register click on Get a Library Card from the Library's Home Page.

2. Try using a different web browser, some databases seem to work better on one browser than another.

3. Still having issues? Submit an Ask a Librarian enquiry and we can investigate further.
