Welcome to SPARC online

SPARC is an online archive and currently holds selected records from the Private Deposit & University Collections from the University of Tasmania’s Special & Rare Collections, and selected Images of Tasmania as collected by Colin Dennison.
The full scope of the Special and Rare Collections can be found on our University of Tasmania Library web page.
UTAS Library is progressively adding new archival material received and retrospectively adding Private Deposit material previously described in paper indexes.
This online searchable collection will keep growing.

The Library gratefully acknowledges the 2016 UTAS Research Infrastructure Grant which has funded the establishment of this online archive.
