Hansard is the official record of the proceedings of the Parliament. It is not a strictly verbatim record, but rather a verified and accurate record. Repetitions and redundancies may be omitted and obvious mistakes corrected. Interjections not responded to by the principal speaker are omitted. Hansard has no editorial policy other than the pursuit of accuracy and consistency.
Hansard is available online in two formats. One format is the full text of the day's proceedings in one House on a single contrinuous page, and is referred to as the Day Transcripts. The other format is a series of articles that have been extracted from the full day transcript, each article representing one item of business.
Visit the parliamentary committees pages for transcripts of committee hearings, reports and information about committee inquiries.

The printed record is the official version of debates and proceedings of both Houses of the Parliament. Copies of the printed record are kept at the State Library of New South Wales.
