National & State Libraries Australasia (NSLA) E-Resources Consortium

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.

The purpose of the NSLA E-Resources Consortium is to secure access to commercial electronic information resources for its members. The NSLA E-Resources Consortium aims to simplify licensing arrangements, improve cost benefits for member libraries, and to explore opportunities for making electronic products more widely available to all Australians, regardless of where they live.
