Are you interested in local history or Tasmania’s past?

Libraries Tasmania has dedicated archivists and historians working behind the scenes to bring your stories to life.

Selected stories from our collection are available online, researched thoroughly and carefully told. Read the State Library and Tasmanian Archives Blog and uncover local histories never heard before, such as The Art of Mapping Kunanyi/ Mount Wellington story. Discover how these stories came about as part of the amazing 91 Stories online exhibition.

Find out how Libraries Tasmania’s conservation team cares for culturally valuable items in-house and read about restoration techniques in news from the lab.
