The CSU Regional Archives Collection, which spans over 4500 linear metres, is managed as five distinct parts to reflect our main collecting areas. These collections have varying accession conditions, so it is important to contact us before making arrangements to visit.
We are the designated regional repository of the State Archives and Records Authority of NSW in the Riverina and Murray areas. This role permits us to collect, house and make available the archives of state government agencies in this region. More information on state archives can be found at State Archives NSW.
Our Regional Records Collection is comprised of private, non-government archives of historical interest created within our collecting region by businesses, professionals, community organisations, and individuals.
We are responsible for managing the archives of the University's divisions, offices, faculties and schools. We are also the caretakers of the records from the precursor educational institutions of the University, stretching back to 1896. More information can also be found via the University Records Management site.
We act on behalf of the Page Research Centre Library as the repository for a significant collection of archives and records created by the National Party and its precursor organisations - the Australian Country Party and the National Country Party.
Our Search Room has a number of useful resources available for family history and local history research, including the Archives Resource Kit, the NSW Government Gazette, regional newspapers and a small library of local history books.
The CSU Regional Archives is open to all members of the public; however, those researchers wishing to use any part of the Collection should note that there are certain conditions surrounding the accessibility of records.
