In 2011 the State Library of Western Australia received a significant collection of material from the Tura New Music archives, including sound and video recordings, images, and ephemera including posters, publications and scores of new music works. The library has been working to identify and catalogue these items, and this material is being included as the basis for the Western Australian New Music Archive
