The primary objective of the Falkland Islands Government in setting up the Archives was the preservation of existing, current and future Government records with the aim of making them easily accessible to facilitate the operation of government and to ensure the study and promotion of Falkland Islands history locally and internationally, and to raise awareness of the Islands.

The majority of the holdings are government records but with the change of the Archives into a National Archives it is now accepting those collections from the private sector and individuals which fit within its remit.
