In 2011, Public Record Office Victoria was funded to run a series of digitising workshops for community organisations. 

At these "Just Digitise It" workshops, participants learned how to digitise their cultural collections and gain experience in the process of digitisation from planning through to publishing online.

We developed a downloadable guide to digitising projects and video demonstration (see the sidebar of this page) to assist groups with their digitising projects. We also recommend looking at the Digital Access to Collections website, set up by several national cultural heritage sector bodies.

Public Record Office Victoria recognises the support of the Community Heritage Grants Scheme. Community Heritage Grants are jointly funded and supported by the National Library of Australia, the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, Office for the ArtsNational Archives of AustraliaNational Film and Sound Archive and the National Museum of Australia.


Material in the Public Record Office Victoria archival collection contains words and descriptions that reflect attitudes and government policies at different times which may be insensitive and upsetting

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples should be aware the collection and website may contain images, voices and names of deceased persons.

PROV provides advice to researchers wishing to access, publish or re-use records about Aboriginal Peoples
