Series: The things we keep

Join our expert archivists, historians and curators as they as they highlight the City’s key historic collections and lead you through the new Archives & History Resources catalogue.

This series of short talks showcase the types of items in our archives, history and civic collections and shows you how to find them in the catalogue. Each talk will be followed by a Q&A session. Book in for one, or all six!

The City Archives is one of the premier archival collections in Australia and a rich resource for exploring Sydney’s history. In February 2020, the City released a new catalogue which provides unprecedented access to the archival collection. Recently, for the very first time, a selection of items from the Civic Collection have been added to the catalogue.
