You can bring our unique collections online


Our vision for the future is to transform public access to Australian history and culture by bringing our unique collections online for everyone.

Your generosity is helping us to make this vision a reality.

With over $7.5 million raised to date, we have digitised a range of collections from historical almanacs to performing arts collections to the papers of Australian women leaders.

With your support, we can make even more of our unique national collections available online, for everyone, for all time.

To support our digitisation work, you can give online now, or, if you would prefer to donate by bank transfer or other means, please contact

Thank you for supporting your National Library.
