This interactive data visualisation of the Victorian government archive is a handy tool to get a sense of the kinds of public records we hold. Search by keyword or by typical government function and then click through to series within the collection. Enjoy playing!  

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.
