The Victorian Government Library Service (VGLS) provides information resources and services for the State Government of Victoria, Australia.


Public Access to material

The public is welcome to view our online catalogue but as VGLS is a reference library you cannot borrow items directly from us.

Please contact your local public or university library to access items and request an Inter-Library loan. VGLS has restricted lending on many of the collection items due to their uniqueness and cultural value so all requests will be accessed for suitability to be borrowed.

The Knowledge Resource Centre is closed to all members of the public and viewing of the collection is not permissible onsite.

Access to your department's subscribed resources is by signing in with your VGLS username and password.
