The Guide to the collections, edited by Clifford A. Burmester, was originally published by the National Library of Australia between 1974 and 1982. In it he made a survey of the library's collections by subject. This online Guide is an update of a number of the collections that appeared in the original publication, The entries give details about the individuals, families or organisations that assembled the collections, describe the size, scope and strengths of each collection, and summarise how they have been acquired, organised, catalogued or listed by the Library. While the majority of the collections described consist largely of Australian materials, there are also entries for significant Asian, European and North American collections. These descriptions are intended to complement the Library's catalogue and other finding-aids.
