Welcome to eSmart Libraries
eSmart Libraries is now in 45% of public libraries across the country.
eSmart Libraries is a free purpose-built system designed to equip libraries and connect library users with the skills they need for smart, safe and responsible use of technology.
Launched in August 2012 by the former Prime Minister of Australia, the Hon. Julia Gillard MP, the $8 million, multi-year partnership with the Telstra Foundation is delivering eSmart Libraries in collaboration with Australia's library network over the next six years to all of Australia's 1,500 public libraries for free.
An independent evaluation shows eSmart can complement safe library operations and assist staff/ user online skills development. Read more here.
