Ephemera, which are the minor transient documents of everyday life such as pamphlets, leaflets, brochures can be useful sources of information for research. Such items can help provide a more complete and detailed picture of a subject than would otherwise be possible.
The State Library houses an extensive collection of ephemeral material such as souvenir brochures, invitations, theatre programs, business pamphlets, art exhibition catalogues, electioneering material, tickets, tourist brochures, government agency pamphlets and menus.
