It was established as autnomous body in 1978, although the collection was first formed in 1973 under the leadership of Dr Keith Swan. In 1978 the then Riverina Archives became an approved Regional Archives Centre for State archives from the Riverina and Murray regions.
The collection is separated into three parts, State archives, Regional archives and University archives. They aim to document the history of Charles Sturt University and its predecessors as well as the Riverina and Murray regions
