We are very pleased to announce that the University’s art and heritage collections are now part of the University Library. This is an exciting development bringing together the management and development of all special, rare and unique collections under a single program.

This consolidated approach will better position the University as an active and high-profile player in the cultural sphere of local, national and international collecting institutions. In bringing together the combined expertise of our library, archival and museum staff, the University community will also benefit from a holistic and focussed approach to collection management, discovery and access.

Access to the collections will not be interrupted and we will be working with all of our partners and stakeholders to ensure a smooth transition.

We look forward to an exciting new chapter in the University’s art, heritage, special and archival collections and believe that this new integrated approach will enable an even greater contribution to the research, teaching and cultural programs of the University. There is also great potential to enhance the student experience through exposure to and interaction with the University’s diverse collections.

For more information about the changes and any enquiries, please contact Lee Amoroso, Manager, Special Collections, Archives & Recordkeeping (SpARK).
