UNSW Archives Publications

From time to time the Archives also publishes material from its Oral History Program. These publications have been made possible by generous funding from the U Committee.

Publications include interviews with scientists and technologists as well as a former UNSW chancellor and vice-chancellors. They examine their life before UNSW, their academic career, major research projects and academic life in general. Also explored are parts of the Australian way of life like the volunteer ethic, group organisation, charity fund-raising, the uses of leisure, unpaid labour and worthwhile causes.

Some publications are out of print and can only be used in the Archives' Reading Room; others are available for purchase by contacting the Archives.
