The University of Melbourne Archives collects, manages and provides access to the historical records of the University, Victorian business, trade unions and other labour organisations, community and cultural organisations, as well as the personal papers of many individuals prominent within them.
Records date from the first years of the colony of Victoria until the present day and cover a very wide field of endeavour. The Archives were established in 1960 and to date hold some 18 kilometres of records.

The University of Melbourne Archives is honoured to announce the acquisition of the Germaine Greer archives. The archive documents almost six decades of Professor Greer’s work and achievement, comprising manuscripts and typescripts of published work (and occasionally unpublished work), working papers and research notes, personal and professional correspondence and unsolicited correspondence from members of the public. It also includes files for academic research and publications, including files on women artists and seventeenth-century women poets, awards and honours, photographs, video tapes and numerous audio and digital files. Filling over 150 filing cabinet drawers, it will become one of UMA's largest personal collections.
A new blog showcasing our business archives and associated research is now online.
