Explore the Mitchell Library archives from the comfort of home

The Mitchell Library has launched a great new website at www.atmitchell.com

The website is a fantastic resource for students and anyone else who has an interest in Australian history. It’s full of original materials such as personal journals, manuscripts, paintings, photographs and maps.

The site is interactive which means you can actually turn the pages of Joseph Banks Endeavour Journal, watch the flight of Bland’s Atmotic Ship (which was never built), as well as listen to the roar of the crowd at the very first cricket match played in Sydney.

Have a look at atmitchell.com and marvel at the wonders of digital technology and how it has brought to life these musty archives from the State Library.
