The Library of the Indonesian House of Representatives was established around the same time the history of the Indonesian Parliament began during the Dutch administration (Volksraad). In 1951, when Indonesia still adopted the Republic of the United States of Indonesia (RIS) administration system and was based in Yogyakarta, the parliamentary library was moved to Yogyakarta, Central Java. The library continued the legacy of the Dutch Government's "Bibliotheca Volksraad", making some of its collections heritages from the Volksraad era. Since the Indonesian capital was moved again to Jakarta, the library was relocated to a building that was once belonged to Balai Pustaka, the Indonesian state-owned publisher, near Banteng Square. Currently, the Parliamentary Library is located at the Parliamentary Compound in Senayan, Central Jakarta.
