‘Are you being bombarded with campaign material for the upcoming federal election? Most of us will quickly send this material to our recycling bins, but this ephemeral material is also the stuff of hsitory.

The State Library is endeavoring to collect as much Western Australian – 2010 Federal Election ephemera materials as possible for its WA Heritage Collection.

So, if you have received candidate or party leaflets/flyers, letters, campaign materials, how-to-vote cards, posters, etc for your local candidates or electorate– don’t throw them out— we would love to receive them.

Items can be forwarded to:-
Collection Development Team
State Library of Western Australia
25 Francis Street
PERTH WA 6000

(one copy only of each item please!)

And if you’ve got extra copies you can always send them to the National Library.’
