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.

Register online to order records for use in the Search Room or as a digitisation request. You will need to visit the SRO to access any items you have ordered for viewing. When requesting a digital copy through the catalogue 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, are not generally digitised. You can also submit a digitisation request through our main website.

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.
