Records management and collecting policies
Official TAFE records are transferred to the New South Wales State Archives Authority. The TAFE History Unit retains handbooks, annual reports, newsletters and other items not usually held in the State Archives. Its collection is not strictly archival, but it is the best starting point for research into the history of technical and further education in New South Wales. (95% in-house).
