Records management and collecting policies
Tasmanian State, Local Government and Statutory Authorities' records covered by legislative prescription.
Public access is through the Hobart building or the Launceston LINC (for Launceston Local Studies Collection items). A repository is also located at 2A Chardonnay Drive, Berriedale, Hobart.
The records date mainly from the 1820s to the present. Of particular significance among nineteenth century records are those of the Colonial Secretary's Office and the Convict Department. Records are also held from a variety of Tasmanian non-government organisations, individuals, companies, associations and societies.
