Archives and libraries represent an essential part of any community’s social infrastructure and are centres for communication, research, learning and culture. The State Records Office of Western Australia and the State Library of Western Australia are committed to ensuring that people with disability, their families and carers have the same opportunities, rights and responsibilities enjoyed as others to access the services and facilities provided by these organisations.
Under the Disability Services Act it is a requirement that the State Records Office and the State Library develop and implement a Disability Access and Inclusion Plan that outlines the ways in which we will ensure that people with disability have the same opportunities to access services, information and facilities.
In 2017, administrative responsibility for the State Records Office was transferred from the Department of Culture and the Arts to the State Library of Western Australia. Previously the State Records Office participated in the department’s plan.
The current State Records Office plan is available on the former Department of Culture and the Arts website.
The current State Library plan is available on the Library's website.
