The State Library of Victoria Foundation

was established in 1994 as the fund-raising arm of the State Library of Victoria, which is the largest public reference and research library in Victoria, with a collection that includes more than one million books and journals, 90,000 newspapers and hundreds of thousands of paintings, photographs, maps, manuscripts and other materials.
The Friends of the State Library of Victoria was founded in 1966 (and known as the Friends of the La Trobe Library until 1984), its objects being to assist, encourage and promote the interests of the State Library, by seeking sponsorship and gifts for the Library and by searching for and obtaining books, manuscripts, pictures and other library material, particularly of Australian interest. It organised lectures and other activities for members, and from 1968 published the La Trobe Library Journal. In 1997 the Friends amalgamated with the Foundation, becoming a subcommittee and continuing their traditional activities in this context.
