Library Collection

Our Library’s collections support QAGOMA’s Collection, exhibitions and programs. We collect resources on Australian and contemporary Asian and Pacific art. Our holdings include the Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT) Exhibition Archive and the QAGOMA Exhibition Archive. We also hold a selection of resources on international art.

Find these resources through the Library’s online catalogue. Our general collection is accessible during Library opening hours with access to special and archival collections by appointment. We encourage researchers and postgraduate students to contact us before their visit to ensure material is available.
