Did you know the State Library of NSW has a large collection of Australian World War 1 diaries? The collection includes 1140 volumes of diaries written by over 500 servicemen and women, and is supported by newspapers, photographs, maps and ephemera.
Through the Digital Excellence program funded by the NSW Government, the State Library is fast-tracking the large-scale digitisation of WWI content including the diaries completely digitised, transcribed and available online.
