These companies are commercial providers of archival products such as acid free photo albums and archival boxes for storing your papers.
People often seek advice on how to take care of cherished personal items, handed down through the family, which they hope to pass on in good condition to the next generation. This guide provides some practical and simple ways to care for your personal records.
One option is to donate them to a suitable archival repository, to ensure their long-term preservation and to make them available to the wider community. The State Library always welcomes the opportunity to appraise original records for the archival collections, when they relate to South Australians or South Australia, are of state significance and have enduring research value.
If you would like to discuss this option for your records, please contact the Library's archival field officers
