Depending on what you're looking for searching the Archives' collections involves more than one step. Here are our tips!
1. Explore the Library's Digital Collections Portal
The Portal is a combined gateway for our digital collections (Archives Online and Research Online) and our Online Exhibitions. You can search the Portal for our descriptions of the digitised items we hold.
2. Search our individual discovery platforms
If you search each of our digital collection discovery platforms directly you can search not just our descriptions but also within the actual items (ie. the ocrd text within our pdfs).
1. Search the Archives entries in the Library's Search feature
Use this to find details of UOW publications (including theses), newspaper titles and local history books held in the Archives, as well as details of a growing range of our regional archival material.
2. Search the Archives' collection listings
In addition to brief title descriptions, you can view lists of contents (inventories) for many of our archival collections via the Archives website. Use these to find regional and other research material held in the Archives, as well as selected UOW historical records
[*To limit to the Archives website - add library.uow.edu.au to doman and include the word 'archives' in your search]
3. Ask about our additional listings in the Archives Office
Some collections are not fully catalogued or do not have their inventories available online. Several subject based card catalogue indexes are also held in the Archives Office.
