The archives may be best known for their labour materials, but individuals serious about sugar cane railway history know the Butlin as the location of the CSR corporate archives... correspondence and other papers, as well as photographs and maps, from their operations in Australia and Fiji.
The CSR Collection remains the property of CSR, thus access to the collection and publication of materials from the collection are subject to prior approval. However, the extensive collection provides a fascinating glimpse into the people and activities of a major Australasian company... and the Butlin staff are always very willing to assist researchers in their work.
The Archives have a limited web presence but it will save time to examine the online indexes and seek permission to access materials prior to visiting the ANU location as the CSR Collection is quite large... and don't forget that prior approval is required to access the collection.
