Research guides

caption: Researching at the Vaughan Evans Library.

The library staff have produced a number of research guides (see the list of topics on the left) 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.
Please note: The Vaughan Evans Library will be closed for renovations on 23 December 2013 and is scheduled to reopen on 3 June 2014, this date may change so watch this space. During this period the research enquiry service and Inter Library Loans will also be suspended. Thank you for your understanding and patience, the library staff look forward to helping you with your information needs in 2014.
