The City Archives of the Adelaide City Council was established in 1978. The documentary heritage of the City is preserved in the Archives, Civic Collection, and Oral History collections. The Archives holds about 5,000 shelf metres of records and these exist in a wide variety of physical formats: volumes, files, documents, photographs, maps, plans, microfilms, computer printouts, tapes and CDs.
For access to records held by the Adelaide City Archives please contact the Archives Officer. Public access to records less than 30 years old is not generally available, while those containing information of an exceptionally sensitive or personal nature are withheld. Access may also be refused to records in poor physical condition.
