AustLit is a virtual research environment and information resource for Australian literary, print, and narrative culture scholars, students, and the public.

AustLit includes:
- citations and, where possible, the full text of creative Australian literature: fiction, drama, poetry, children's and young adult literature, travel writing, autobiography, memoir, biography, essays, Indigenous life stories and oral history
- critical material on Australian literary works, creative writers, and on Australian literature in general
- biographical material about Australian writers and other significant figures in Australian literature
- material about organisations concerned with the development and production of Australian literature and its distribution such as publishers, distributors, literary agencies, magazines, journals and newspapers, writers' groups and the Literature Fund of the Australia Council
- other information relating to Australian creative writers and their works (e.g. awards, prizes and literature funding, manuscript information)

The majority of AustLit records for literary works provide citations and library holdings information for published works, rather than access to full text. However, there are approximately 52,626 full text works available through AustLit including:

- 19,854 poems
- 3,886 short stories
- 281 novels
- 2,074 criticisms
- 4,472 reviews

AustLit was formed in 2001 by a merger of a number of separate specialist databases, each of which had a different focus and inclusion parameters.

AustLit includes material dating from European settlement in Australia (ca.1788) to the present. Contemporary renditions of pre-1780 literary works will also be included when relevant.
