API & data sets

The recent digitisation of our World War I collections has made an enormous amount of data available for research, reuse and reinterpretation. The State Library encourages all users to get creative with our collections through the use of our open source data.

We have four World War I datasets available for use and reuse. Many other archives, libraries and memorials across Australia and New Zealand have also released datasets from their collections. We are very interested in projects that link and create meaningful insights into this data. Are you working on a project of this nature? Please let us know.

For more information on how to access the Library's collections via open source data, please see our research page

If you have any questions or enquiries please contact us.
