Archival collections found at Sindh Archives are either transferred to Sindh Archives
from Government offices or being procured from people who share an appreciation
for the value of historical materials as well as an interest in their preservation
and public access. All personal collections whether one item or a thousand, contribute
to our understanding in a variety of disciplines. We acquire archival material from
all available sources as donation and against payment both.
If you have a particular data need, the directorate may be able to purchase it for
you depending on the nature of the material, the licensing requirements, and the
availability of funds. The decision for acquisition is taken by high level ‘Acquisition
Committee” headed by administrative Secretary of department.
