For access to many Anglican records held at the State Library of South Australia, you will need permission from the Diocesan Archivist at the Anglican Archives. This is called 'mediated access'. Records which require mediated access are clearly identified in the State Library catalogue and/or findings aids and State Library staff will also be able to advise you if this is necessary.
Mediated access is required when records contain personal information about individuals whose privacy needs to be protected.
For access to Anglican records a written application to the Diocesean Archivist is required. You will also need to provide proof of your identity. If you are requesting access to records about someone else, permission from that person or other evidence of eligibility to access that information must be provided. If you need a copy of the records ensure that you include this in your request.
