State Library of South Australia

National Film and Sound Archive

Did you know that the State Library is an Access Center for the National Film and Sound Archive? You can access the NFSA collection items here at the library!

The National Film and Sound Archive (NFSA) is located in Canberra. It is the national repository for all audiovisual materials for Australia and has Access Centre partners in each state.

The State Library is the Access Centre for South Australia and we have a small NFSA collection onsite, largely dealing with SA topics. 

How to access the State Library's NFSA collection

Search the catalogue National Film and Sound Archive Australia or by individual title.

How to access the NFSA collection

If the State Library does not have the NFSA collection item you require, you can make a request for access and have the item sent here for viewing, find out about using the NSFA collection.

Search the NFSA catalogue

Once your request has been processed by NFSA, State Library staff will contact you when the item has arrived and is available for use.

Note: All NFSA material, including material in the onsite collection, is available for use within the State Library only unless special permission is sought and received from NFSA.
