Rare Book Room

The Rare Book Room is one of the treasures of our Archives and Special Collections - the University’s repository of close to 300,000 rare and significant books, music, maps, prints and East Asian materials spanning from the 11th century to the present day.

Noel Shaw Gallery

Gregory Burgess: From the Coalface is an exploration of the architect’s archive, working processes and legacy. Through the lens of Burgess’ cultural philosophy, the exhibition showcases the major projects of his career, and the work of University of Melbourne Architecture, Building and Planning students who have spent the past two years interrogating his archive and vision.

The Noel Shaw Gallery is located on Level 1 of the Baillieu Library at the University's Parkville Campus.
