NSW institutions have Snelling thesis for public access

Posted by Davina Jackson 28 October 2013


Davina Jackson's Douglas Snelling PhD thesis – rejected by RMIT University as 'unacceptable' in an academic context – has been archived for public access at Sydney's State Library of New South Wales (Mitchell Wing), the Powerhouse Museum research library and the NSW National Trust library.

The Powerhouse and National Trust librarians require appointments to view their printouts of the thesis, which has not yet been designed as an architecture book for general publication.

The State Library's catalogue entry is at
