ANU Archives

The ANU Archives preserves the university's own archives and collects archives of business, trade unions, professional associations and industry bodies, to support research by the University community and the general public. The Noel Butlin Archives Centre is a national collection of over 20 kilometres of records of Australian companies and organisations. The Pacific Research Archives consists of the records of administrators, researchers and companies that have operated in the Pacific Islands.
