The Australian Emergency Management Library is a nationally accessible source of emergency management information. Since opening in 1956, the library has grown into one of the largest of its kind, providing services to universities, local governments, individuals and the emergency management sector.

Resources in the library reflect the diversity of information in the sector. Content spans themes including disaster recovery and business continuity, leadership skills and effective risk management. The library houses resources of national interest and significance and makes these available via inter-library loans across Australia.

Access to the Australian Emergency Management Library online catalogue is facilitated by the Australian Institute for Disaster Resilience via the Australian Disaster Resilience Knowledge Hub at
