State Library of South Australia

Register for home access to eResources

The State Library provides home access to eResources including authoritative databases that include journals, magazines, current and historical newspapers on a wide range of subjects including history, science, business, medical and technology. Home access means that registered library users can access these eResources from home. We also have a range of ebooks covering subjects in social sciences, humanities and information technologies.

All South Australian residents are eligible to register for a library card to gain home access to eResources. For non-South Australian residents try searching on Trove.
