While the Library will be closed on Tuesday 2 November, you will still be able to access an extensive range of resources via our website, as well as find and request items online for delivery after Cup Day.

This includes placing advance orders for books stored here at Swanston Street.

To view books, journals and newspapers from our offsite store on Wednesday, you’ll need to place your order by 5.30pm on Monday 1 November. To view items in our heritage collections, your order must placed by 3pm.

In the meantime, if you have a spare few minutes, take a look at our newest image gallery which features a selection of Melbourne Cup-related material from our collections.

And there’s also a whole lot of information, including a list of racing terms, field results and a short history of the Cup in the Melbourne Cup Resource Guide.
