Our new name!

We are pleased to announce that we have a new name!

On 25th October, a change in name in the State Records Act 1998 (the Act) was approved returning “Archives” to our name.

Our corporate name is now “State Archives and Records Authority of New South Wales” but we may also be called State Archives, State Archives NSW or State Archives and Records NSW.

This is great news as we now have a much easier way to describe the full scope of what we do and who we are. The change doesn’t play down the importance of the work we do with records and in providing advice on recordkeeping to public offices but allows us to build a greater identity in the community and across Government.

You will see our new name being ‘rolled out’ over the coming weeks.
