Registering as a user

Public users

You do not need to register as a user to search for records on ArchivesSearch.

If you are viewing records at the Research Centre for the first time State Records staff will register you as part of your booking.

If you have previously registered as a public user with State Records and would like to view your order history, please contact us.

Government agency users

You do need to register as an Authorised Agency User to use ArchivesSearch to search for and view restricted records that your agency is responsible for.

See our website for more information about Authorised Agency Users and agency loans.
