What is the Digital Library?

The Shoalhaven Libraries Digital Library is your library away from the library. We have a great range of digital books, audio books, magazines, and databases for use at home. Our digital library is available on your PC, Mac, tablet and smartphone. Shoalhaven Libraries' apps and digital resources are free for library members.

What do I need?

To access the Digital Library, you'll need a valid Shoalhaven Libraries membership and a computer, laptop or mobile device. To become a member, visit one of our branches, or click here to join online. Can't get into the library? Become a Digital Member. You'll receive a Digital Membership number, which will give you access to all of our online resources and apps. Please note that while our Genealogy resources and Choice Online are usually available for use in the library only, they are currently available from home. Visit the Genealogy page for details.  

How do I log in?

Most of these resources are available 24/7 and can be accessed here at the library or at home. To log in, you will need your library card number (located on the back of your library card under the barcode). Some resources will also require you to use your date of birth (eg. 01021980) as a PIN. Please note, EBSCO  resources will refer to your library card number as your Patron ID. Others, such as Kanopy and RBDigital, will prompt you to create a separate username and password. 

Example with 1st February 1980 as a birth-date:

ID: S123567
PIN: 01021980

We strongly recommend that you log into our library catalogue and change your default PIN.
