Library services to levy payers

The John Fornachon Memorial Library houses the largest collection of technical wine resources (books, eBooks, journals, journal articles, conference proceedings, standards etc.) in Australia. A frequently updated web-accessible database contains more than 100,000 records and is accessible twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. While providing information services to the Australian grape and wine sector and to the researchers of the AWRI is the Library’s principle responsibility, our collection is also used extensively by other groups, including students, government bodies and private companies. During business hours, library staff can perform specialist information searches and arrange for document delivery.

In addition to the Library catalogue, you can also search and order articles via the following methods:

  • Information packs
  • Search for AWRI staff publications
  • Order articles from AWITC presentations and workshops presented at AWITC 2013
  • Access AWRI Reports published in the Wine & Viticulture Journal
