The Rob Willis Collection is housed in the National Library in Canberra, Australia. In 1983 Rob Willis met John Meredith and accompanied him on several field trips until Meredith retired in 1994. Willis then began to travel further afield, leaving a manager to run his business. He gradually withdrew completely from the day-to-day running of his business and devoted more time to recording and interviewing in country towns and cities throughout Australia. His collection of tapes and field notes, comprise this collection.

The Rob Willis Collection provided details of some of the Australian tunes in this archive.
