Abstract

Boxing Clever: Relocating the National Archives of Australia

In late 2016 the National Archives of Australia (NAA) began the physical relocation of its Canberra repository and a selection of material from its Sydney repository to the new National Archives Preservation Facility. The relocation was completed in late May 2017. This paper will provide a broad outline of the role of NAA Preservation in the planning and preparation for the move, with a particular focus on audio visual material. It will discuss how NAA Preservation identified cold storage requirements to assist with the building design process, the planning and preparation for the safe handling, transport and storage of the audio visual material.
