Archives and Special Collections: uncover University treasures

Held deep in our library and archives are the treasures of the University. Our Special Collections include rare books, music, maps, and prints. We hold original items that span musical scores to manuscripts from Australia, East Asia and the world.

Our Collections are available to students for their own research, as well as embedded in a number of our online and face-to-face classes.

The University is also home to one of the most varied, richest, and largest university archives in Australia. Our 20 kilometres of archives house records of the activism, politics, business, social movements and significant individuals that have shaped our society.
