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 guides

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.

Study resources 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.
