Using State Library historic maps and images, students will explore basic inquiry skills that allow them to:

  • pose questions
  • devise a hypothesis
  • critically test and evaluate findings
  • communicate their discoveries to one another.

What do the programs cost?

  • All State Library education programs are provided free of charge.
  • All equipment and materials costs are covered by the State Library.

What pre-visit information will we receive?

  • An email will be sent to the booking contact person to be distributed to all the attending teachers and adults. This will include all pre-visit information relevant to the booked program.
  • Some early years or primary programs will also receive a posted invitation addressed to the children.

What happens on arrival?

  • Arrive prior to the start of the program, so that students can eat and access toilet facilities located on the ground floor behind the lift.
  • If the weather is inclement a shelter area is located on the eastern side of the building between the State Library and the Museum’s armoury building.
  • A staff member will meet your group near the main entrance.

What should we bring to an education program?

  • Medication may be carried by the adult supervisor in a backpack.
  • Please arrange name tags for early years and primary students.
  • Devices are provided by the State Library, but we encourage senior secondary students to BYO devices.
  • Students who wish to join the State Library and receive a library card need to do so before visiting the library and request the card to be mailed to them.
  • Students wishing to access photocopying services will need to bring money.
  • Storage is available to accommodate school bags or food/drink crates.

Do you have teacher tips for visiting the State Library for research?

  • Discuss research topics with your students and the types of resources that might be useful.
  • Students may wish to access a Library Guide relevant to research topics.
  • Involve the school librarian in your students' research projects.
  • Allocate sufficient time at the State Library for your research.
  • Some collection items are in storage but you can request an item to be retrieved from storage via the catalogue before your visit. Find out more about the retrieval service.
  • If you are intending to stay to use the resources after your program, you will need to book electronic database computers for your students to use.
