Search Room

SRO's Search Room is moving and the SRO is working on new research space for State Archives 

At 12 noon on 23 March 2020 the SRO's Search Room at the Alexander Library Building in the Perth Cultural Centre was closed to the public as part of a national strategy to stop the spread of infection of Covid 19 Coronavirus.

Since then the SRO has been working on new research space. As an interim measure, from Tuesday 19 May 2020 appointments from researchers can be made on a limited basis, to enable the viewing of archives, by requesting archives via the State Records Office's online catalogue, also requesting an appointment by emailing

For more information on the archives held by the State Records Office, please also see the Collection Guides.
