We welcome offers of material for our collections. Your offers help us to record, share and interpret the fascinating history of our city and neighbourhoods.
The type of material we collect includes archives, artwork, photographs, published books, maps, ephemera and objects. Donations may be in a digital format.
We accept collection material only if it meets our collection criteria.
We generally do not accept material that is in poor condition, a duplicate of material we already hold, not sufficiently relevant to the Parramatta Local Government area or comprises a size or format that we are not able to store appropriately.
To make an offer, please complete our donation form and return via email.
Once we receive your form, we will assess your offer and get it touch to let you know whether we are able to accept the material. You can expect to hear back from us within 30 days of submitting the form.
If we are to progress with the donation/purchase, we will progress with the formal aquisition process. Once the paperwork is processed, we will arrange transfer of the material with you. When we have received the material, it will be formally accessioned into our collections and added to our catalogue.
If you require any further information regarding offering collection material, please submit an online enquiry.
