Books and manuscripts

Books can range in size from small, flimsy pamphlets to very large hard-bound works. Libraries are full of them; but older books which are out of copyright are being digitally copied and made available online. Find more

Manuscripts are (usually) unique items such as personal documents (letters, diaries) or unpublished texts (which might later be published). They also include the records of voluntary organisations and businesses. Many manuscripts are being digitised for online access. Find more

The Tasmanian Archive and Heritage Office has rich collections of 19th and early 20th century printed music scores. Some of these scores - songs, dances, piano pieces, hymns and other pieces - have been digitised. Find more
