Administrative history

The mission of the Library and Information Service of WA (LISWA) was to provide and promote equitable access to information resources and services which support the intellectual, economic, cultural, social and recreational needs of the people of Western Australia.

LISWA held responsibility to:


  • develop and maintain public library collections appropriate to the needs of Western Australians;


  • cooperate with local government and approved bodies in the provision and development of free public library services;


  • provide responsive reference and information services;


  • acquire, provide access to, and preserve information materials with particular emphasis on WA's documentary heritage; and


  • develop and maintain the State's private archival collections.
