Giving to Untapped: the Australian Literary Heritage Project

Please visit the 'Untapped' website for further information regarding the project. 

To watch the virtual launch of 'Untapped: the Australian Literary Heritage Project' click here!

Benefactors who make a gift of $650 and above (thus supporting an entire book) will have the option of having their gift acknowledged within a digitized text itself, seen by all who borrow or buy the book. If you choose this option, we will contact you to pick which out-of-print Australian title you would like in your name, or in honour or memory of a loved one, once all books have been digitised (subject to the author's permission).

To make a gift  –

  1. Visit the Melbourne Law School online giving page
