The State Library has launched two multi-million dollar projects which will provide unprecedented, world-wide access to our state and nation's most iconic and historically significant documents and objects.
To document the war to end all wars the State Library of NSW began collecting, from 1918, soldiers' personal stories, including diaries & letters - the war as they actually lived it. This amazing collection is at the heart of our commemoration program.
Over three years to 2010/11 we will be adding over 400,000 electronic records to the online catalogues. These records will provide electronic access to collections previously only searchable via the Library's card catalogues and indexes.
Join Scott Wajon, Lang Ngo and Alan Davies for discussions about this exciting project to digitise 3,500 glass plate negatives documenting the 1870s gold rush era in New South Wales and Victoria.
We are continuing the important process of revitalising the State Library of NSW - one of the great libraries of the world- so that our wonderful buildings and collections can be used and enjoyed for generations to come.
