Access collection items

How to order collection items to view

Once you identify items and corresponding box numbers of interest in the Records of Coles Myer finding aids, please contact the Ask A Librarian service to arrange access.

Delivery times

Items in the Records of Coles Myer archive are stored offsite. Orders close at 4pm each day and items are available after two business  (week) days.  There are no retrievals on weekends, but items delivered prior can be viewed during the weekend.

Items are delivered to the Heritage Collections Reading Room on Level 2A of the Library.  Staff taking your order will book a space for you in that room.

Access restrictions

As we have limited space to store items being viewed at the Library, we may place limits on the number of items we will deliver for viewing at the one time.

Staff will need to check if fragile objects such as clothing and glassware, and large format items can be made available to view. Viewing times for these items are by appointment.
