State Library of South Australia
The State Library offers a range of resources and activities to support primary and secondary students.
These include research guides, eResources, and visits (in-person and virtual).
Research tips for students - Research is an important part of your studies and in particular your SACE Research Project. To be a good researcher, you must be able to locate, organise and evaluate authoritative and credible information sources.
Selected eResources for students - The State Library provides home access to eResources including authoritative databases that include journals, magazines, current and historical newspapers on a wide range of topics.
If you'd like your class to learn about research from one of our librarians, we offer virtual visits.
Digital collections school resources - Showcases selected items from State Library collections aligned with the Australian curriculum: HASS and History.
For in-person visits we have developed two self-guided tours for school years F to 6 and 7 to 12. This resource provides everything you need to know and planning your own self-guided visit.
We also offer virtual visits via MS TEAMS where your class can learn how to use the library for research e.g., SACE research. These are approx. 60 minutes duration and are subject to staff availability.
