história

The Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Library was established by the University of South Australia in December 1997 as an integral component of the Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Centre. The Centre honours Bob Hawke, a third generation South Australian and one of the most notable Prime Ministers of Australia.

The Library is the first Australian prime ministerial library to be established during the lifetime of the prime minister concerned, and is the home of the Bob Hawke Collection.

The role and objectives of the Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Library are to:


  • describe and manage a unique collection of scholarly and research materials and memorabilia
  • provide research services and access to the Library's resources to historians, researchers, students and the general community
  • interpret and highlight themes from the Hawke era through public exhibitions, educational displays and online presentations
  • foster research and publication to further raise the profile and significance of the Hawke era.
