RUSI of Tasmania





The RUSI Library is a unique and valuable collection of national historical and cultural importance.

The collection is dedicated to developing our knowledge of war and to promoting the informed discussion of defence security. 


The RUSI Library reading room is located in Legacy Hall at 159 Macquarie Street, Hobart. 


The Reading Room is fully accessible to RUSI members, Legacy members, ADF members, ex-service organisations (e.g. Naval, Military and Air Force Club of Tasmania) and UTAS students as well as to the general public, though the general public may not borrow books.

The library is open from 10:30am to 2:30am every Tuesday and from 6.30pm-8.30pm on the third Tuesday of each month or by appointment.
