Fuller Collection

The Fuller Collection was acquired from Professor John Fuller to celebrate the Institute's 50th anniversary in 1995. The collection is named after John Fuller, who was a pioneering professor in the UK's Hotel Management industry. William Angliss teaching staff member, Graham Dodgshun, was taught by Professor Fuller in England, and it was this connection that led to the possibility of obtaining the collection.
The collection consists of over 530 books on wine, distilling, brewing, viticulture, and the technological aspects of wine production, spirits, and other drinks. Many of the books date back to the 18th and 19th centuries, with the oldest published in 1736.

Exploring Heritage through Collaboration: William Angliss Institute and Oxford Brookes University Celebrate the Fuller Collection

William Angliss Institute and Oxford Brookes University are delighted to announce the reunion of their collections, and they have collaborated to create an innovative showcase for their treasures. Two interactive digital presentations have been jointly produced, highlighting some of the most captivating pieces from their collections. These presentations offer a distinct opportunity for students, researchers, and the general public to immerse themselves in the depth and richness of these collections in a dynamic and engaging manner. This collaboration exemplifies the institutions' commitment to accessibility and engagement, leveraging digital platforms to make their collections come alive for a wider audience.

The digital campaign is now live and accessible starting Monday, 17th April. To participate, please visit the website: http://library.angliss.edu.au/collaborate-fuller-collection.
