The State Records Office of WA and State Library of WA have co-located research spaces (comprising the Search and Reading Rooms) on the 3rd floor of the State Library at the Alexander Library Building.
Established under the State Records Act 2000, the State Records Office is the Western Australian public records authority with responsibility for managing, preserving and providing access to the State's records of information.

By supporting our public sector colleagues in WA we seek to achieve a secure and discoverable record of government that is valued by our community and used to create a legacy for current and future generations of Western Australians.
