The Australiana Collections of the State Library of New South Wales contain some of the most priceless pieces of Australia's cultural heritage. The Collections grew from the vision of its two major donors, David Scott Mitchell and Sir William Dixson, after whom the Mitchell and Dixson Libraries and the Dixson Galleries were named. These two wealthy and public-spirited men devoted their lives to seeking out the raw material of Australia's history. The Collections contain the manuscripts, pictures, books, maps, relics, and other material that document our birth as a nation. 

Treausures of the State Library of New South Wales provides a tantalizing glimpse into the Library's treasures, showing the enormous range of material held - its depth, strength, and richness as a great documentary resource. Most importantly it brings the Australiana Collections alive, revealing the human face of original historical material and of the men and women who shaped our past.

Thanks to your support we can continue our mission to actively conserve and protect our natural, cultural, social and Indigenous heritage for future generations to enjoy.
