InfoCentre libraries

The InfoCentre libraries in Darwin and Alice Springs hold books, journals, government reports and maps about geoscience, mining, minerals and energy in the NT.

InfoCentre staff can assist you to locate timely and relevant material and to use the library catalogue and other online databases.

Anyone can use the library collections on site, but only department staff can borrow directly from the InfoCentre.

Books and journal articles can be borrowed through public or research libraries using inter library loan (use NUC code XMD).

The Darwin InfoCentre has a public computer for using the online databases and a photocopier is available to library users.
