University of Melbourne Archives Blogs
The University of Melbourne Archives has been collecting business collections since 1960 and today holds extensive records reflecting Victoria's economic development. This blog showcases our business collections and the fascinating and varied research they have produced.
The purpose of this blog is to bring to light material that deserves its place in Australian literary history as well as to provoke discussion and inspiration amongst those interested in the past, present and future Australian literary scene. It is also with anticipation that writers can use the material to help them thematically as well as stylistically, and deepen the context of literature in the collection by contemporary engagement.
This blog discusses the processing and listing of the George Paton Gallery collection and highlights significant connections and events as they arise. The collection is available for access through the University of Melbourne Archives to researchers or anyone interested in art and Melbourne history and culture. An online, searchable list of the collection will be accessible early 2013.
Using collections from the University of Melbourne Archives, French language students discuss the experiences of Australian soldiers in France during the First World War
