Members of the National Library of Australia [NLA] or the State Library of Victoria [SLV] or Brimbank public libraries have access to eresources that are not available through Google or other free search engines. These resources include eBooks, magazines, newspaper, and reference databases. Much of the information in the eresources is not available elsewhere on the web.
