The University of Adelaide Archives collection dates back to the 1870s and includes records related to the University’s governance, teaching programs, staff, students, clubs and societies. Its website includes many reference aids including a full listing of archival holdings. There is also a link to the Series 169 Digital Archive where digitised records from one of the oldest series in the Archives including correspondence relating to the establishment of the University of Adelaide and its early years of operation can be viewed.
This blog is designed to display some of the more interesting and unusual items held by the University of Adelaide Archives, and to provide a forum for their discussion.
Due to limited storage space on this site, users are sometimes directed away to the Archival Allsorts Document Library where the bulk of digital records are stored.
