Introduction to the Archival Collections

The Library is responsible for several archival collections, which contribute to a rich political, social and public health history of Australia, and in particular of South Australia. These collections focus on prominent South Australians including Bob Hawke (the first Prime Minister of Australia born in South Australia) and support areas of interest to UniSA’s students, staff, researchers and the general public.

Archival collections are not for loan.

For further information, please contact Ask the Library, the Academic Library Services Team for the Division of Education, Arts and Social Sciences or search the UniSA Library Archives.
