Further information about the project

The Royal Society of NSW has an extensive archive and collection of objects, some of which are displayed at the 200th anniversary NEXUS Exhibition at the State Library of NSW. 

While the restoration of some of the archives required for the NEXUS exhibition has been generously supported by the Society’s membership, there is much more to be done.

The preparations for NEXUS have revealed the true extent of the archives and how valuable these items are in terms of the early history of NSW.  This current funding drive seeks to implement a project to provide professional evaluation and documentation of the Society’s archives, under the supervision of the Society’s Honorary Archivist. 

The outcome of this project will be the prioritisation of the future restoration, display, and public access to these important archives.
