The National Library of Australia Catalogue has been redeveloped to modernise the technology that supports it.

We’re here to help

Learning a new way of doing things can take time and we appreciate this may be challenging and may take a while to get used to.

What you’ll find in the redeveloped catalogue

  • New search functions – including limiting searches, Boolean search and advanced search.
  • Refined Search results, including narrowing your results based on AIATSIS Language Codes, year of publication, and online access.
  • Discover similar items related to your search.
  • Simultaneous search across the Library’s physical and digital collections, ejournals, databases and, for the first time, manuscript finding aids.

We’ll continue to work on features, and we’ll gradually add new functions to the site.
