PROS 19/05 S2 Minimum Metadata Requirements Specification sets out the minimum metadata elements which must be captured for the records (documents, information, data) created or received by Victorian public office staff in the course of carrying out their work.

All Victorian public offices must comply with this Specification when designing organisational processes and systems.

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
