This data collection was gathered by Louis Goldberg over an extensive period and was previously held at two locations: Goldberg's Carlton office and his home in Hawthorn. Goldberg saw Deakin University as an appropriate repository for conserving his life's work and approached the university to house his collection in 1994. He provided it to Deakin University prior to his death in 1997. The establishment of the collection was sponsored by the Australian Society of Certified Practising Accountants and the Faculty of Business and Law, Deakin University. The collection was officially opened at Deakin University Library's Geelong Waterfront Campus on June 2 1999.
