About the Department

The Department of the Premier and Cabinet (DPC) drives the Premier’s priorities in South Australia. Our staff enjoy working with colleagues who value integrity, knowledge and intellectual capability. They are committed to providing professional advice and services, and more importantly, don’t see what they do as “just a job”.

About the Business

The State Library Collection Development (Published Collections) team is responsible for identifying, selecting and acquiring all of the published material that the Library collects. Under the legal deposit provisions of the Libraries Act 1982 the team has particular responsibility for collecting all South Australian publications regardless of format. This process is in transition to collecting in electronic form and with the explosion in self-publishing has an increasing workload to identify and establish relationships with a much greater number and type of publisher than existed in a print only world.
