Researchers and creatives from every background and discipline are invited to imaginatively respond to the unique collections of the John Oxley Library which includes manuscripts, maps, music, newspapers, oral histories, and rare, printed materials.

Successful recipients will have the opportunity to collaborate with specialist librarians, receive a stipend, access a personal workspace in the Neil Roberts Research Lounge and delve into the documentary heritage of SLQ’s collections.
