Accessing Australian Government Documents


The purpose of this guide is to assist you in finding Australian Government and Parliamentary publications and documents.

There are separate guides for:

 Finding Australian Government Reports and

Statistics and Census Data - Australia.


The University Library receives selected government publications, for example NSW and Federal Debates (Hansards) and parliamentary papers. These parliamentary materials are located in print in the Law Library compactus. Some publications are located in Storage.  

These publications are arranged alphabetically by country, then alphabetically by type of publication, then chronologically, e.g.

      G        for Government publication

     AUS      for Australia

       D        for Debates

Some sets of government publications are held in microform (location prefix MIC). These are shelved in the Microform area on Floor 1 of Fisher Library. Some publications are located in Storage.

All other government publications are located on the main shelves of Fisher and other University of Sydney Libraries.

Many of the above resources, however, are now freely available online from Federal and State Parliamentary Websites as well as databases such as Capital Monitor.

This free monthly reference service listing Australia's recent government publishing output is of interest to all engaged in research and the provision of information. Each publication has been published during the current or previous two years by a government department or agency.

The records in this file are derived from the Australian National Bibliographic Database, maintained by the National Library of Australia. Records from the GovRAP are a subset of the ANBD and are created by Australian libraries.
