The construction of the National Archives Preservation Facility (NAPF) in Canberra is an exciting evolution for the Archives. It will ensure the preservation of our irreplaceable collection continues into the future.
There will be disruption to access to the Canberra-based collection from 30 October 2016 to 1 July 2017 as we relocate 15 million records from multiple repositories and rehouse them in the NAPF.
During this time we may not be able to meet the service standards set out in our Service Charter. While we are unable to retrieve all affected records, you can still view digitised records online.
More information is available on the National Archives Preservation Facility page.
