Reference enquiry

While physical access to the library and archive is currently limited (see 'Are you planning a visit?, right), we have extended online research enquiries to researchers in Sydney as well as further afield.

Staff answer enquiries in order of receipt and aim to respond within 30 business days. However, due to restricted access to resources and an increased number of online enquiries, responses may be significantly delayed. We thank you for your patience and understanding.
