(L) Dr. Jared Thomas (R) Kylie Percival, University Archivist

The significance of the University of Adelaide’s history as a story inextricably entwined with the cultural fabric of South Australia was recognised at a UNESCO Inscription Ceremony on 14 May 2013.

The event formally added the University Archives’ earliest records to the UNESCO Australian Memory of the World Register.   The inscription acknowledges the cultural and historic value of the University Archives for the benefit of current and future generations.

This is a significant achievement as the University of Adelaide is the first university in Australia to have its historical administrative records recognised by this prestigious programme.
