Good things come and go! Celebrating temporary donations

An integral part pertaining to the historical collection of the YCW Archive and Research Centre are the donations provided by previous members or associates of the Australian and International YCW movements. However, understandably not all donations are permanent fixtures in the Archive, rather they are temporary donations. These donations arrive at the YCW Archive and Research Centre to be preserved, catalogued and digitised before being sent home to live happily ever after. This year the YCW Archive and Research Centre Collections Workers have been working on a number of temporary donations which have already or will be soon returned safely to their owners. We at the YCW Archive and Research centre would like to celebrate a temporary collection that has recently been returned home. This collections belongs to former YCW associate, Jim Nippard. We would like to thank Jim for his temporary donation and assistance in collection of the wonderful history of the Australian Young Christian Workers movement. We will do this by displaying a small number of photographs provided by Jim. We would like to acknowledge the other wonderful temporary donation collections currently residing in the YCW Archive and Research centre. We hope to be able to provide insight to these soon also.
