Flinders University and library appreciate the generous assistance of donors in increasing the range and depth of information and other research resources made available to our students and staff for teaching and research.
The Library has received several valuable bequests and gifts of money, books, papers, memorabilia and art works. Bequests build on the range of the library’s special collections in making rare, unusual and ephemeral material available for original research and teaching.
Major bequests and donations include
The Library houses the Heap Mannam collection, a bequest of furniture, silverware, china, artworks and books, formerly belonging to Mrs Mannam's family, the Heap family of Wales and gifted to the University by Mrs Isobel and Dr John Mannam.
Items from the Heap Mannam collection are displayed in special collections and occasionally in the Library Exhibition room and other areas of the library.
