COVID-19 coronavirus update

From Wednesday 10 June, we’ll be open as normal.

Welcome back.

From Wednesday 10 June, we are resuming normal opening hours and services across all four of our offices. If you have ordered records or have a booking confirmed prior to 9 June, we will still honour these. Ordering via Archway has been restored and normal ordering limits will apply. See our Reading Room Guidelines if you haven’t looked at these recently.

Our remote reference base charge was reduced to $25 during Level 2. We will maintain this charge for the foreseeable future.

As we unite to recover from the effects of COVID-19, it's still important that we keep the basic hygiene measures, including washing your hands and coughing or sneezing into your elbow. Contact tracing codes are available at our offices.
