The general collections (books and serials)
Printer Friendly Version

The QVMAG Library's general book collection is held at the Museum at Inveresk and the Art Gallery at Royal Park, with the number of volumes totalling about 10,000 and 1,500 titles respectively.


The Library holds a little over 900 titles, all of which are held at Inveresk. This collection is accompanied by much smaller collections of newspaper supplements and journal reprints/offprints on a variety of Tasmanian subjects.

The Library's general book and serials collections support the three core areas of Museum research and curatorial endeavours:

Visual art and design
The natural and physical sciences

The book and serials collections therefore are dominated by these subject areas, with Tasmanian and Australian publications strongly represented. The Library continues to place a heavy emphasis on the acquisition of Tasmanian publications that augment these fields of research.
