(online resources, + libraries, publishers, booksellers we love)

Library cataloguing is about creating networks of meaning. 

In broader practice, the work of the Melbourne Art Library is informed by, in reference to, and alongside wider networks of people, ideas, and happening. As well as looking inward to our collection, we think it's important to look outward at our surrounding community. Below are some links to online repositories of information, other libraries that we feel an affinity with, local publishing houses we admire, and some booksellers too! 


Online Resources

A collection of free online resources - archives, online art, databases, back-issues of magazines, etc. etc. etc.

Local Publishers & Publications

Publishers and publications from Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific, and Asia that bring us incredible voices. Thank you. 

Local Booksellers

Support our local booksellers! If there's a title you particularly want to hold on to, or to gift to someone...

Please help us build these lists, and get in contact if there are other resources we should add.


We acknowledge the Wurundjeri and Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation as the traditional owners of the land on which we live, dream, and create. We respect their ongoing connection to country.
