The Charles Sturt University Regional Archives advise First Nations peoples that our historical collection contains images, voices and names of people who have passed, in printed, audio-visual, and online material.

The Archives respects First Nations communities and cultures and warns users that some material in our collection may be considered insensitive, inappropriate, or outdated today. These items reflect the attitude of the author or the period in which they were written, and do not represent the views of the Archives.

If you see a description in Atom you believe contains culturally sensitive, harmful or distressing content, and should be removed from public view, please bring it to our attention by contacting the Reference Archivist on 0497 529 690 or Content of reported items will be assessed by First Nations and Archive staff.


Our Archival Collection is divided into five ‘repositories’:

University Records
We are responsible for managing the archives of Charles Sturt University's divisions, offices, faculties and schools. We are also the caretakers of records from the precursor educational institutions of the University, stretching back to 1896.

State Archives
We are the designated Regional Archives Centre for the State Archives and Records Authority of NSW in the Riverina and Murray areas of our state. This role permits us to collect, house and make available the archives of state government agencies in this region.

Regional Records
Our Regional Records Collection is comprised of private, non-government archives of historical interest created within our collecting region of southern NSW by businesses, professionals, community organisations, and individuals.

Page Research Centre Library Collection
We act on behalf of the Page Research Centre Library as the repository for a significant collection of archives and records created by the National Party and its precursor organisations - the Australian Country Party and the National Country Party.

Search Room Library
Our Search Room contains a small quantity of books, microfilm and other resources that are available to support your research. Charles Sturt University's Margaret Carnegie Collection is also hosted in our Search Room and contains an amazing array of books on Australian history and art.
