Our Research Library is full of reference books and eResources ready for you to browse and explore.

We regularly add new books to the shelves in the State Library which are searchable and browsable in the State Library Catalogue.

This month we have a spotlight on LGBTQIA+ books, literature, and eResources to celebrate IDAHOBIT on May 17. 

The Archives of Sexuality and Gender eResource can be searched from outside the Library by South Australian residents who are registered  with the State Library.
