Researching Camden

Librarians at Camden and Narellan Libraries can assist in person with questions about the local area including heritage and current information. Questions can also be emailed to the Local Studies Librarian.


The Local Studies Collection covers all aspects of the Camden local area. Whether you’re looking for current events or items of historical significance we have information on Camden’s people and places including social, environmental and conservation issues, and both built and natural environments.

The main Local Studies Collection is housed in the Local Studies Room at Camden Library. A smaller set of duplicate items is housed at Narellan Library and some further duplicate items are available for loan at both locations.

Electronic versions of information files on local topics are available at Camden and Narellan Libraries and hard copies of files can be viewed in the Local Studies Room at Camden Library.
