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.
UniSA's archival collections include:
Limited edition ceramic Commemorative Plaque issued in Hawke's first year as Prime Minister. The plate features the names of other ALP Prime Ministers, including John Watson, Andrew Fisher, J. H. Scullin, John Curtin, Ben Chifley, and Gough Whitlam.
