Timor-Leste: History of the collection

To support the VU Timor-Leste Strategy the Library formed the Timor-Leste Collection, beginning with an initial donation from the Oxfam Australia Library in March 2012, and is intended to chart the development of Timor-Leste as an independent nation. The Timor-Leste Collection has been augmented through the transfer of rare and research quality items from the Footscray Park main collection.

The Timor-Leste Collection will continue to be added to by donations from personal and organisational collections. Of particular significance is the donation of Dr. Helen Hill's research collection on Timor-Leste.

In collaboration with CHART (Clearing House for Archival Records on Timor), a digitisation project was completed to make available online the journals Tapol and Timor Link.
