Finding Aids and Indexes

finding aidsArrangement of archives contained within the State Records Office's collection is by consignment number (formerly known as accession number). Each group of records transferred to the State Records Office is been given a consignment number and is documented in our online catalogue using the Series Registration System (SRS). The Archive Notes (ANs) was previously used by the State Records Office to register archives prior to the Series Registration System but all archives are now being integrated into the online catalogue.

Through the use of the online catalogue it is possible to search through the holdings of the State records Office for records connected with any given topic.

In addition to our online catalogue, there are also a number of specialised indexes and finding aids available within the State Records Office Search Room which have been created to assist clients to easily locate the information which they require. A listing of some of the more significant indexes and finding aids can be found there.
