Our Role and Functions

Attention: open in a new window. Print

The Archives today is indeed fortunate to have inherited a fine collection of records initiated by the Australian Credit Union Historical Co-Operative Limited. We seek to build onto this collection by:

  • appraising the records of the credit union movement
  • developing practices for the systematic transfer of records from individual credit unions and special service providers
  • receiving relevant records of many who have served the movement
  • arranging and describing archives in accordance within accepted archival practices
  • taking steps to preserve the physical records by placing them in acid free and chemically inert enclosures and housing them appropriately
  • making records available for research purposes
  • assisting in the induction and education of Directors, Management and staff serving in our sector
  • providing guidance in relation to records management within the credit union sector.
