Acquisition by State Library of Victoria

1 March 2010

The Library is in the process of purchasing a substantial part of the Rennie Ellis Collection, an extraordinary visual record of Australia's social history and popular culture in the last decades of the 20th century. This acquisition will ensure that this unique resource is preserved for the future and made freely accessible to researchers, historians and the general public.
