Catalogue upgrade: temporary changes to services

The Library’s catalogue will be upgraded between 5pm Thursday 7 November and 10am Saturday 9 November.  

During this time the Library's catalogue will still be available to search. Some online services, however, will be unavailable.

You will not be able to:

  • request books online
  • join the Library as a new user or update your registration details
  • access your My items account
  • search the Australiana Index
  • use our online copy ordering service

You will be able to:

  • request books in person at the Library
  • search for articles in the catalogue or from the eResources menus either in the Library or at home (if you are already a registered Victorian user)

If you are ordering items from off-site storage to use Friday 8 November through to Monday 11 November, please note these deadlines:

  • newspapers, books and journals – by 5pm Thursday 7 November
  • manuscripts and pictures – by 3pm Thursday 7 November

Electronic requesting and ordering copies of collection items online will be available again from 10am on Saturday 9 November. Joining the Library online will be available again on Monday 11 November.

We thank you for your patience during this period.
