A list of research guides to help students, researchers, curators and family historians learn more about Australia's maritime heritage, sea migrations to Australia and social history relating to Australians and the sea.
The library staff have produced a number of research guides (see the list of topics below) to help students, researchers, curators and family historians learn more about Australia's maritime heritage, sea migrations to Australia and social history relating to Australians and the sea. Popular research areas such as the First Fleet, immigration ships and the wreck of the Dunbar are included.
To assist with your research, you can search the library catalogue or ask a librarian for assistance using the online library research enquiry form.
You can also access a small, but growing, number of publications on the Vaughan Evans Digital Library.
Visitors are welcome to come in to the library too. Check the opening hours and location and call or email to make an appointment.
