Archives and Manuscripts


The University Archives

The University Archives was founded in February 1975 to safeguard the permanent value records of the University of Newcastle. The University Archives within the Auchmuty Library at the University of Newcastle holds some 2,000 shelf metres of priceless manuscript material dating from the year 1826.

Archival collections contain a great wealth of untapped material, and some individual collections have extraordinary range and depth for research. Since then many more important and valuable research collections relating to the region have been deposited in the archives including the magnificent Pender Archive, the records of the Anglican Diocese of Newcastle  and the Percy Haslam Collection  relating to Aboriginal culture.

Archives is situated near the Information Common on level 2 of the Auchmuty Library, University of Newcastle, Australia. Our opening hours are 9.00 - 5.00pm Monday to Friday.
