The Society endeavours to facilitate access to information on history and heritage topics related to the City of Wollongong local government area.  The Society tries not to duplicate the work of other organisations or individuals.

Finding information requires the use of multiple sources. A good place to start is the Local Studies collections of the Wollongong Central Library. The collection is located on level 1.
