News - August 2022 - our brand new catalogue has just been launched! Please bear with us as we fine tune our settings and activate all the new features!

News - August 2022 - Searching has changed!
  • For truncation, use the asterisk, eg. parent* finds parent, parents, parental, parenting, etc
  • For quotes and phrases, use the drop down search indexes, not punctuation
  • For boolean and brackets, use the separate fields in Advanced search. NOT and OR are just normal words you can search on. 
  • Author searches. In general, put the surname first, eg. Stone Sharman. The search boxes add an AND between words, so you can add authors in a row, eg. Hayes Higgins, or Hayes Alan Higgins Daryl
We are still fine-tuning the refine options, fuzzy logic, and spelling suggestions. Watch this space!

Welcome to the library!

The AIFS library supports the Institute's work to create and communicate knowledge about families in Australia. We support the research needs of our staff and disseminate knowledge to the broader sector through databases, bibliographies and public enquiries.

The library is not open to the public, but you are welcome to use our catalogue. You can look up our AIFS reports, as well as reports and articles from the broader family studies literature. If an item is not available online, ask your local library about how you can source it.
