SUPPORT US

The Dictionary of Sydney has no ongoing operational funding, and needs your support.

The Dictionary of Sydney is a unique digital story-telling platform about Sydney with over 400 contributors, 980 entries, 12,735 entities and 4,217 multimedia items freely accessible online. It is a free public resource for everyone to share and enjoy.

Between 2006-2016, the City of Sydney was the Dictionary of Sydney’s generous major government partner, providing cash and in-kind support.

In 2016, the City of Sydney provided a special one-off grant to transfer the Dictionary of Sydney website to the State Library of New South Wales. As of December 2016, the City of Sydney no longer funds the Dictionary on an ongoing basis.

The State Library will be hosting the website and providing technical support, but is not able to provide any operational funding. You can read more about the project here.

The Dictionary now needs its many supporters to help raise funds to ensure that the Dictionary can continue to increase its content and improve functionality.

 


In order to keep adding stories, facts and insights about Sydney’s history to the Dictionary, we now rely upon the goodwill and generosity of our supporters.
