The search function on ArchivesSearch works on most browsers, but to order records you must use Internet Explorer .

You will need to make changes to your Internet Explorer browser when using ArchivesSearch if:

  • the menu colours are dark blue with some orange boxes, instead of all orange
  • there is no “Request Unit” button when you are logged in and viewing a unit. 

Refer to access to ArchivesSearch using Windows Internet Explorer browsers for instructions on how to adjust Internet Explorer settings.

Further information about using the catalogue can be found on our guide to Using ArchivesSearch.
