Reference Library

The Archives has a modest collection of publications dealing mainly with Victoria local history.

Although these items cannot be signed out of the Archives, visitors are welcome to consult them in the reference room any time during open hours. They are listed below.

Please note that the Archives also has a wide variety of pamphlets and near-print material, as well some rarer publications, which form part of the regular archival holdings rather than the reference library. These items are available for consultation in the Archives but are not described as part of the reference library collection. The reference library collection is searchable via the Archives' Online Search.
