Welcome

Welcome to the SRO's online catalogue.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are warned that SRO's online catalogue includes the names of deceased persons. The SRO also acknowledges that accessing some of this material can be confronting.

Learn how to search our catalogue. Also follow some simple instructions which can be found at the top of the page located under the i button .

Order records for use in the SRO's Search Room by registering as a user online.

Submit a digitisation request through the online catalogue by selecting 'request a digital copy for a fee' in the drop down menu. When requesting a digital copy you will be advised if the archive is suitable for digitisation and provided with information about the method of payment. Archives that are restricted, too fragile, or too difficult to handle without potentially incurring damage, will not be digitised.

You can export search results directly from the results page if you are logged in, or from the clipboard if you are not logged in.
Please do not use the reports button, particularly for large reports, as it can clog the system.
Once you have started your export, you will be asked to look at the jobs management page.

Some archives are available on microfilm and the majority of these can be viewed in the Search Room during our opening hours.

Digital images that appear in the catalogue are provided for research purposes and any further copying should not be carried out without reference to the Australian Copyright Act 1968 and the SRO. For more information on digital image display see this webpage.
