Become a Library member

Library membership is free, and gives you access to over five million books, photos, artworks, maps, manuscripts and more.

Victorian members can also have free access from home to the Library's eresources, including ebooks, enewspapers, ejournals and streaming services. Access to eresources is provided for users' private research or study purposes only and not for users' business, commercial or work related purposes.

To register using this form, you must provide your email address. I prefer not to provide my contact details.

Note: We're Victoria's largest research library – but we're not a lending library, so you can't borrow books to take home.


The Library manages your personal information in accordance with the Privacy and Data Protection Act 2014 (Vic). For more information, please see our Privacy statement.
