The Directory of Archives in Australia was first published as a print publication in 1983 by the ASA and evolved into a web version in 1996. It was originally designed to include all archives and manuscript repositories in Australia.

The content in this Directory is currently in the process of being updated.

The Directory uses the AtoM open source archival description application. See the online documentation to learn how to get started with AtoM, including how to customize and edit this page to suit your own website.

AtoM is a collaborative project with the aim to provide the international archival community with a free, open source software application to manage archival descriptions in accord with ICA standards.

The goal is to provide an easy to use, multilingual application that is fully web based and will allow institutions to make their archival collections available online.
