What about library & archives laws?

Library and archives laws exist at a State (Libraries Act 1988) and Federal level (Archives Act 1982). Library and archives laws regulate the storage of official and public records and allow for public access to those records under specific access criteria.

Generally, it is safe to assume that these laws will not apply to records kept by community workers.
