Howard Library Mission

The Howard Library works to improve public leadership and policy in Australia by:

  • preserving and making accessible the papers of The Honourable John Howard OM, AC, Australia's 25th Prime Minister, and the papers of Howard Government ministers;
  • advancing research in, and informing debate about, public leadership and policy;
  • curating exhibitions that introduce Australians to leadership and policy challenges in a balanced and non-partisan way through the experiences of the Howard Government (1996-2007); and
  • contributing to the civic education of all Australians.
