The National & State Libraries Australasia (NSLA) E-Resources Consortium (formerly the NSLA Consortium, and before that the CASL Consortium) was established by the peak body representing national, state and territory libraries in Australia. These libraries have a major responsibility for collecting and preserving national, state and territory documentary heritage materials, providing quality reference and research services and assisting in the provision of public library services to the people of Australasia.
