SRO joins the memory of the world

In 2000, Australia was the first country to establish a Memory of the World program with UNESCO with the vision that the world's documentary heritage belongs to everyone.  The program has since grown to include more than 60 countries and an extraordinary variety of documents illustrating the story of humankind which will remain preserved, protected and permanently accessible to all.

State Archivist blogs!

Welcome all SRO bloggers! It seems appropriate for me as State Archivist to kick start SRO’s new blog and what better way than to talk about one of the highlights of my job. In my position I get to marvel at the many archives in our collection and I’d like to share one of my favourites with you.

Film crews!

behind the scenesThe State Records Office of Western Australia has been host to a number of film crews recently. It’s been exciting to get some of our stories onto this “new” media, and we hope that it makes people think of Archives as living places, rather than documents that are in storage.
