Closure of Victorian Department of Transport, Planning and Local Infrastructure Library
Tuesday, 23 July 2013

The Victorian Department of Transport, Planning and Local Infrastructure Library (formerly Department of Transport Library) is to close. The following notice was issued this week:

Changes to Transport library services

On 2 August 2013, the library collection currently at Level 5, 121 Exhibition St will close.


This closure is to review the hardcopy collection and enable a longer term emphasis on digitising suitable content for online access and protecting specialised or historically valuable items in the collection. The project is being managed by the Victorian Government Library Service (VGLS) Shared Service Provider (SSP) at the Department of Treasury and Finance in consultation with the department.

From 5 August, external users of the collection will not be able to use the collection for research or reference. The library team will not be able to provide interlibrary loans to other libraries.

The VGLS library catalogue has a public access view and as material is digitised will become a richer repository for Victorian Government transport related material.
