Founded in 1991, the University of South Australia is an innovative, outward-looking university built on more than a century’s experience as a leader in educating professionals and applied research. UniSA is part of the influential Australian Technology Network (ATN), an alliance of five prominent universities from each mainland state. The ATN’s aim is to help enhance Australia’s social and economic wealth by creating, disseminating and applying new knowledge.
UniSA was founded in January 1991 through the amalgamation of the South Australian Institute of Technology and the Magill, Salisbury and Underdale campuses of the South Australian College of Advanced Education. (See Genealogy). Under the University’s Act, its mission was ‘to preserve, extend and disseminate knowledge through teaching, research, scholarship and consultancy, and to provide educational programs that will enhance the diverse cultural life of the wider community’.
UniSA will be a leading contributor to Australia having the best higher education system in the world, supporting the world’s best educated and most innovative, cohesive and sustainable society.
UniSA educates professionals and citizens to the highest standards; creates and disseminates knowledge; and engages with our communities to address the major issues of our time.
The Library plays a significant role in supporting the University’s teaching learning and research mission through the provision of relevant information resources and associated services.
