Donating archival or unpublished material
Archival records are generated by individuals, families, societies or businesses in the course of everyday living. Material comprises paper documents, photographs, films, video or sound recordings, oral histories, maps, architectural plans, posters, parchment and computer disks. Artefacts like sports trophies and Honour Boards are not usually accepted, but we will photograph them if we determine they are significant for our collection holdings. The Library does not collect artworks unless they support documentary records.
The Library collects archival material of research value that is predominantly South Australian in content, or is by or about South Australians. Donating original documents is preferred but, if you wish to retain the original, copying arrangements can be made.
