We connect Tasmanians to learning and information, their history and their communities. 

We also connect people from around the world to Tasmanian resources.  

Our Volunteer Program offers a volunteer-friendly environment where volunteers work alongside, and are supported by paid staff to value-add to our collections, services and programs.
