Description

The Archives contain records, generated by the general administrative body of the Dominican Sisters, the Sisters themselves, and the ministries of the Sisters since 1867. They take the form of papers, photographs, slides, films, videos, DVDs, legal documents, plans, maps and artifacts. There is also a large collection of digitised photographs.

There are limited records, in the form of enrolment registers, annals and some photos, for St Mary's Maitland, Star of the Sea Newcastle, St Mary's Elm Court, Moss Vale, All Hallows College Bathurst, St Dominic's Priory Tamworth, School for Deaf Girls Waratah, St Mary's Delgany School for the Deaf Portsea, St Lucy's School Homebush - schools which no longer exist.

The holdings include no files relating to the professional history of staff members of the schools and colleges currently sponsored or previously administered by the Sisters. Similarly, the Congregational Archives do not contain personal records of past or present students of these institutions.

Access
Limited research facilities are available by appointment, at the discretion of the archivist. There is no general access to the stacks, and generally no lending service, but materials can be sighted and sometimes photocopied.

Repository reference links are external links to the relevant catalogue record in the holding repository. If you experience a broken link it will be because the repository has not understood the value of maintaining persistent links and/or the judicious use of redirects. Try locating the repository's catalogue search and search on the records' creator's name and/or the repository reference number for the records.
