Online Anywhere in Australia: Using the NLA's Chinese e-Resources

National Library of Australia

Australians already have access to a significant range of electronic resources through their State/Territory, academic and public libraries.  However, remote access to Chinese language electronic resources is still not fully in place. From September 2008, the National Library of Australia provides all Australians, who have registered with NLA, direct, seamless access off-site to all Chinese language electronic resources, including electronic books, journals and newspapers. This means registered readers, regardless of location, can utilise a wide range of online databases 24 hours a day, seven days a week, without physically coming to the Library.

The Library’s Chinese e-Resources for remote access include:


If you wish to access to these subscription electronic resources that are accessible from off-site, you need to register for a library card. Registration is available to anyone who resides in Australia, free of charge, at http://www.nla.gov.au/getalibrarycard. If you are outside of Canberra, we can post your library card through mail.

Once registered, just follow the eResources link located on the National Library homepage and log in using your library card number and last name. Resources available from offsite are clearly identified on the eResources portal http://www.nla.gov.au/app/eresources/. In ‘Find a resource’, enter ‘China’ or ‘Chinese’ to start browsing.

If you have any specific research needs or enquires, please contact the Chinese Unit of the National Library. We are more than happy to provide you with assistance.
