Full description This project was established to document the involvement of the Australian Science Archives Project (ASAP) and subsequent organisations with the records relating to the development of the plastic banknote. The Plastic Banknote Archives Project was conducted on-site at the CSIRO Division of Chemicals and Polymers, Clayton, starting in November 1989. The survey was continued by the Senior Archivist and Rod Buchanan who started work on the project in mid-April 1990.
This collection was transferred to the Victorian Branch of National Archives of Australia. The guide to the collection was launched by Dr John Stocker, Chief Executive of CSIRO, at a function held at CSIRO's Chemicals and Polymers Division in December 1991.
