  • Function / Content
    This series consists of general files and correspondence managed by the Royal Botanic Gardens, previously known as Botanic Gardens, Melbourne (VA 3124).

    The various subjects and activities documented within these files include:

    - gardens management
    - research
    - education and visitor activities
    - committees and meetings
    - annual financial statements
    - legal
    - donations
    - general administration

    Further topics included in this series include the plan of New Zealand rockery, algae purchases and meteorological observations.

  • Recordkeeping System
    The files in this series do not have file numbers and only some have file titles.
    No control records have been discovered to ascertain if a categorisation system was applied to the records.

    Further research is required to determine if the files belong to an earlier series managed at the Botanic Gardens or parent department.

    Barcodes have been added to the files retrospectively by the Royal Botanic Gardens for their search and retrieval purposes. They do not reflect any original recordkeeping system. The RBGV on the barcodes means Royal Botanic Gerdens Victoria.
