While you are collecting election ephemera for your local studies collections, it would be appreciated if you could assist the State Library of NSW to collect as well.
Every election is a culmination of an enormous range of human endeavours: policy debates, the economy, big and small personalities, fundraising, the media and a broad range of local and global issues. The 2015 State election in NSW is no exception!
The State Library's election ephemera collection captures the drama of elections and we need your help to ensure we build a comprehensive collection.
This material, which is generally regarded by most of us as transient or “throw away” items. Please send
- How to vote cards
- T shirts
- Mail outs
The address to send it to is:
State Library of New South Wales
Digital and online:
We are also collecting the websites and Twitter discussions of the parties, candidates, interest groups, and issues. Please send us through your suggestions for collecting websites and Twitter discussions to firstname.lastname@example.org
The State Library, and the citizens of New South Wales present and future, thank you for your assistance. Please follow our campaign on social media with the hashtag #electcollectnsw.
