Collection Discovery

Collection Discovery (Beta) provides a new way for you to explore curated collections of material digitised by the Library. Collections can also be viewed through our Popular Digitised Collections page.

Collections are organised into sub-collections that order material by date or theme. Navigate through these collections by clicking on thumbnails to view contents. At the item level, clicking on a thumbnail will open an item's catalogue record.

Catalogue records for these items now feature a ‘Collection path’ at the bottom of the ‘Details’ section, allowing you to easily view other items in the same collection via Collection Discovery.

A collection path might look like this: COLLECTIONS / Football record / Football record - Season 1912 / AFL record 1912 Round 16.

Please note that Collection Discovery is currently in Beta and you may encounter issues. Please see Library System Status for details.
