To provide access through the Library's catalogue to the Tooley collection of Australian maps.
Contact officer: Maura O'Connor, Map Curator
Ronald Vere Tooley's map collection reflects the dedicated interest of one man to document the history of the cartography of Australia to the turn of the twentieth century. The collection comprises approximately 1,500 maps of Australia, the Pacific and Indian Oceans, Asia and the world.
It is anticipated that an average of 30 maps will be digitised per week - potentially in parallel with the Ferguson rare maps.
