Two major groups of entries have been added since this site was launched in July 2020:
- Illustrated Books, a new category. Initially, the books catalogued have been limited to significant examples acquired up to 1861 (with linked artist entries as appropriate); see also Appendix: Other significant books acquired for the Melbourne Public Library to 1861. Later, it is intended to add further entries for notable illustrated books acquired from 1862 to 1904.
- Plaster Casts: a set of posts providing a comprehensive catalogue of Melbourne’s former plaster cast collection (at this stage, in the form of lists rather than entries on each individual cast).
