The archival collection held at Temora is closely, if not exclusively, based upon the geographical area of Temora Shire. In addition to the historical records of the Shire Council itself, and its local government predecessors, the project seeks to preserve the records of local community organizations and families.
There are fantastic resources available online for users and lovers of all things cartographic. The Parish Map Preservation Project was commenced in 1997 and aimed to digitise the over 35,000 maps, recording land administration in New South Wales since 1792. These maps are now publically viewable through the Department of Lands website.
Cultural Collections in the University of Newcastle Auchmuty Library holds records relating to the history of theatre and cinema in the Hunter Region. Whilst not a distinct collection as such, but rather a component of many separate collections that have been deposited with us, we hold quite a variety of material.
