The Keith Murdoch Oration was established in 2001 to acknowledge the outstanding contribution of Sir Keith Murdoch and his family to the State Library of Victoria. The oration raises funds to support the work of the State Library and reflects the Library’s commitment to promoting debate in the community about knowledge and culture.
