The Australian Institute of Archaelogy houses an extensive library collection consisting of books, journals and excavation reports based on archaeological research in the Near East, Egypt and the Mediteranean. There is also a significant collection relating to biblical studies.


Located within walking distance to Melbourne's La Trobe University the Institute of Archaeology's library is a quiet and reflective place to conduct your research and study. Our library and artefact collection is right at your fingertips and we offer spacious desk space for students as well as private offices for visiting scholars.

The library collection is currently unavailable to view online. We hope to have this back up very shortly. Please check back again soon or contact Chris Davey for more information


​The library is a research collection and is not available for lending. Access to the collections are available only at the Institute.
