Government records transferred to the Archives
In October the Archives received over 530 boxes of records from government agencies, comprising 135 shelf metres. In addition to the boxed records, the Archives has received an estimated 30,000 maps and plans.
The archived records are files which are a record of government business, policies and decisions.
Since July the Archives has received over 236 shelf metres of records from Department of Health, Department of Primary Industries and Fisheries and Department of Lands, Planning and Environment.
The Archives has also received many registers, survey plans and aerial photographs from the Department of Lands, Planning and Environment.
The records from agencies will be kept permanently in the Archives and in the future will be made available for research in our Reading Room.
