The State Library of South Australia’s core purpose is to collect and maintain the documented history of the state and provide access that connects people with our resources and world knowledge. To support these, we contribute to the wellbeing of the state by providing culturally enriching opportunities to our communities. Including the Aboriginal Reference Group, Adelaide Festival Awards for Literature, and Collab.
We encourage members of the community, organisations, and businesses to consider donating material for appraisal, especially South Australiana, to increase the depth and range of the library's collections.
Learn how we are preserving and conserving the State Library's collection for future generations to explore and research.
