The Nelson Meers Heritage Collection

The Heritage Collection is exciting on a number of levels. Firstly, it represents an important collaboration between a major public institution and a private philanthropic foundation. Secondly, through the preservation and digitisation of many of the items on display, it provides greater access for the wider community to the many precious items held by the State Library of New South Wales.
