National Library of Australia

Libraries Australia
Libraries Australia acts as a single gateway to a number of Australian and international databases. These databases can be searched simultaneously, enabling the user to identify resources published in almost any country in the world. It also provides access to online content of Australian journals.


Trove: Australian Research Online
Trove is an online search engine developed by the National Library of Australia. Australian Research Online (ARO) and the Australasian Digital Theses program (ADT) have now been integrated into Trove, allowing you to search Australian research outputs, including theses from within Trove. Note: you can limit the search to 'theses only' by clicking on the thesis facet on the left hand side of the screen under Refine your results.

Research Communities

COS Scholar Universe
COS Scholar Universe provides authoritative information about more than 1 million scholars and organizations around the world, together with verified affiliation and publication information. The database comprises international faculty at 4-year universities and their departments. Community of Scholars is a unique tool for finding researchers by specific area of study, providing keyword access to the community behind the content.

COS Papers Invited
The database consists of detailed information and deadlines about calls for papers for forthcoming conferences and special issues of scholarly journals. These calls for papers are issued by professional bodies, journal editors and other conference organizers in all disciplines and from all over the world. Thus, the database serves as an alerting service for researchers, scholars and students that are seeking opportunities to present and publish their research.
