State Library of NSW has several floors of archived materials. Books, maps, eupheria, special collections and even furniture that has been donated to the Library over the years.
Looking through the State Library of NSW and the State Library of Victoria web sites, there is a lot of money that is being thrown at digitising significant collections that are currently under lock and key.
Moving forward, our old libraries have to re-invent themselves to remain current and relevant in a society that has information at it's finger tips. Digitising parts of their collections and providing resources to visit schools from these collections is one way of doing it.
