University of South Australia Calendar

Important note about calendars from 2005 onwards

From 1992 to 2004, the University of South Australia Calendar was published in print, and subsequently digitised. When you select one of these calendars from the Library Catalogue, a PDF will open displaying the scanned calendar.

Calendars from 2005 onwards have only been published as webpages, and accessing them is a little more involved. There are many files involved in making a set of webpages display properly. When you select one of these calendars from the Catalogue, you will be prompted to save a compressed (.zip) file.

It is very important that you:A screenshot showing the index.html file.

  • Save this file - don't merely open it at the prompt.
  • Having saved the file, extract/unzip the compressed files before viewing them. It is normal for this extract/unzip process to take half an hour or more.

Once you have extracted/unzipped the files, look in the newly-created folder for index.html, default.html or default.htm. Open this file to begin navigating the calendar.
