Applications for membership can be made online below. While a new membership is provisional until approved by our Board you will have immediate access to the collections and full membership rights for twelve months from the date of joining.
Alternatively you can contact us by phoning 9247 3953 for a print application form or email us. You can also join over the desk during your first visit to the Library if you prefer.
A joining fee applies once when you first join and is in addition to the annual subscription:
- Standard $20.00
- Concessional (Full pension & full-time students) $10.00
The concessional joining fee is available to Australian residents who hold an Australian Department of Social Security full pension and health rebate card, or are full-time students at an approved Australian educational institution. Documentation which confirms this may be requested.
Why not become a Sustaining member?
Sustaining membership is an opportunity to provide us with a fully tax-deductible, GST-exempt donation in addition to your annual subscription. Sustaining membership funds are used to ensure we can purchase the latest resources for researchers. There are three levels available:
- Silver $100 or more donation;
- Gold $250 or more donation; and
- Platinum $500 or more donation.
You can become a sustaining member when you join or renew your membership and you can change the level of your support, or revert to a standard membership, at any time.
Current membership rates as at 1 July 2021 are outlined below. Simply select the level of membership appropriate to your needs and follow the online prompts to join.
