The majority of this library is open to the public by appointment for visitors to research on their own. If the research request relates to a collection item, a National Trust of Australia (Victoria) Property or if significant distance is a factor for the researcher, the research may be done by Trust staff. The National Trust of Australia (Victoria) reserves the right to conduct the research internally, or request that the researcher does the work in person, depending on the situation.
To support the ongoing management and longevity of our archives and collections, there is a cost associated with this research. These funds will cover staffing costs, the digitisation of the collection, and the safe storage of our archives.
Access to the on-site research area at Tasma Terrace can be arranged by appointment only through National Trust Research Staff via email@example.com.
Due to the confidential nature of some of our files and the location of objects and archives at Trust properties throughout the state, requests for collections research may need to be conducted by a member of the Trust’s Collections & Cultural Projects team. In this instance, researchers will be invoiced for the staff time involved.
