The Tasmanian Archive and Heritage Office (TAHO)

Look under the Tasmania's Heritage for the Tasmanian Archive and Heritage Office's collections.

The establishment of the Tasmanian Archive and Heritage Office (TAHO) within the LINC Tasmania framework brings together the collections and resources of the Archives Office of Tasmania, the State Library’s Heritage Collections and the Launceston Local Studies Collection to provide the Tasmanian community with unprecedented access to information about their cultural and documentary heritage.

By bringing together the published and non-published resources of the Tasmanian community and its government TAHO aims to create more awareness, better understanding and easier access to our documentary heritage.

The TAHO collections constitute a large and significant portion of the “memory” of our community. 

Additionally TAHO regulates the preservation and eventual destruction or retention of State and local government records in Tasmania to ensure that records of continuing value to the public and the government are accessible for appropriate lengths of time.

TAHO also seeks to acquire private records which have long-term value to the community and best document the political, social, cultural, economic and natural history of Tasmania.

The Office also provides a number of services to government organisations, both directly and to assist them in complying with their recordkeeping responsibilities and obligations in accordance with the Archives Act 1983.
