University of Adelaide
Miscellaneous student publications 1968-1984

MSS 378.94231 A228mi


This series was created in 1981 in order to organise a large collection of student publications which were gathered in Special Collections.

The first series was arranged in broad subject groups, and covered the period 1968-1980. In 1982 another large collection covering the same period was moved from Technical Services to Special Collections. Staff of Technical Services had organised the publications by issuing body, and no attempt was made to integrate it into series 1.

Not all of the items were published or printed on campus, but they were distributed around the refectories, at Library exit desks and elsewhere.

Library staff do not systematically collect student publications, so these are perhaps only a sample of what appears on campus.

Since the creation of the series we are organising newly acquired material chronologically.
