  • How to use the Records
    How to use this index

    This index can be used to access all files created by the Geelong Regional Planning Authority (GRPA) and the Geelong Regional Commission (GRC). The files are located in VPRS 6975, General Correspondence Files : Annual Single Number Sequence and VPRS 6970 Industrial Inquiry Files.

    Step 1

    Look under the appropriate Keyword which could be part of the file title (a file titled Department of Labour : Circulars, would be listed under Department, Labour and Circular).

    The entries on the location column tells you where the files are located whether in VPRS 6975 General Correspondence Files : Annual Single Number Sequence or in VPRS 6970 Industrial Inquiry Files. The entries for planning files which were transferred to the relevant municipalities in 1993 when the Geelong Regional Commission was abolished read Sth Glg/Nth Glg.

    Step 2

    Write the VPRS/Series, Consignment no and the Box/Unit on PRO 18, the Records Request Form to retrieve your file.

    Note :

    Entries for VPRSnos without any consignment code refer to the first consignment e.g. if it says VPRS 6970 or VPRS 6975 it means it is VPRS 6970/P1 and VPRS 6975/P1.

    Function/Contents

    This index was created to provide access to the General Correspondence Files : Annual Single Number Sequence VPRS 6975 and the Industrial Inquiry Files located in VPRS 6970.

    In 1985, the system of indexing of files on cards was replaced by a computerised indexing system. It appears that the data from the manually created control records was entered on the Commission's computer system. The system was used to generate reports which included a list of files in file number order and a Keyword index. The Keyword Index listed the files alphabetically under keywords which appeared on file title. The Keyword Index was in use from 1985 to 1993.

    System of Arrangement/Control

    Entries in the index are arranged alphabetically under keywords appearing on the title.
