Our contributors continue to digitise collections and enrich them in UWA Collected. As it grows and evolves, there will always be something amazing for you to discover.

Digitisation at UWA

UWA Collected is part of the University's strategy to digitise significant collections and make them discoverable.

The Digitisation Centre of Western Australia (DCWA) is an innovative collaboration to digitise the major Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences collections held across the state. Once digitised, UWA’s collections are stored and preserved in UWA Collected, discoverable by communities and researchers around the world. Where we have permission or copyright clearance to do so, we make the content of the collections available for anyone to view online.

Offensive content

Some material may contain words, descriptions and images considered offensive by current standards. Some may reflect outdated or discriminatory ideas, practice and analysis.

This material does not reflect the views of the University of Western Australia. It provides insight into the opinions and actions of their creators at the time it was created. In some cases it establishes historical evidence which is part of the collections’ significance.

We do not intend to remove, restrict or otherwise change material held in UWA Collected. We may do so in exceptional circumstances or where required by law or University policy.
