Return of Collections to Access Following Repository Works

Collections relocated offsite during repository redevelopment works will be returned to access from 16 April 2018.

The McLaren (McL) and Australiana (Ax) collections are still being processed and catalogued due to these collections size and complexity.  To ensure access to these collections is restored as soon as possible, offsite retrievals will commence 9 April 2018. Delivery of these offsite materials may take up to 5 business days, please consider this when ordering material to view in the Reading Room. This delivery delay is temporary as the collections will return to onsite storage once processing is complete.

UPDATE: The Australiana (Ax) Collection has now been processed and returned to onsite storage.  To access the Ax collection, requests must be placed by midnight for delivery the following business day.

Several small collections will remain offsite permanently and will be available from 9 April 2018 on the same basis as the McLaren and Australiana collections.

We appreciate our Researcher’s patience during these works and regret the necessary inconvenience this has caused.
