Our Catalogue - ArchivesSearch


State Records' catalogue, ArchivesSearch, can be used to search for records in State Records' custody.

Nominated Authorised Agency Users can use their UserID to log in and search for:

  • Restricted and unrestricted records responsible to your agency, and
  • Unrestricted records responsible to other agencies
  • Records currently issued to your account

The methods of searching for records include:

  • Keyword Search - use names or file numbers to search over multiple series and consignments simultaneously
  • Direct Search - access a specific series or consignment and relevant date/file ranges
  • Search in a Series - use names or file numbers to search within a specific series

To identify records currently issued to your account, use the Ordering function on the side panel and click View Current Orders.

For assistance with searching and ordering, or if you have forgotten your log in details, you can access help pages within ArchivesSearch, or you can contact us.
