Mitchell Library Centenary

2010 sees the centenary of the opening of the Mitchell Library (as part of the State Library of New South Wales), endowed by David Scott Mitchell. Mitchell gifted his substantial collection of books, manuscripts, maps and pictures relating to Australia. For the first time, this enabled the public study of Australia itself.
More information about David Mitchell, the Mitchell Library and Australiana can be found at Australia's Culture Portal.
