Donations and Support

You can support the work of the Special Collections through donations of material, funds and research expertise.

Donations have included the archives of composer Jennifer Fowler, and an important early illustrated book on surgery (1678) by Ambroise Paré, donated by Dr Richard Williams.

Funding and offers of support are also welcomed for other purposes, including preservation and conservation, digitization, and sorting and listing of collections.

Friends of the Library

The Friends of the UWA Library are active in raising funds to buy rare and unique materials for Special Collections.

These have included maps like the Polus Antarcticus of Jan Jansson (1650) and local artist Gareth Morse's drawings of the construction of the Duyfken replica.
