Description

In December 2007 several archival collections were transferred  out of temporary custody at the ESRC to their new permanent home at the State Library Victoria. In 2008 ESRC staff commenced work on the description and preservation of those records. Work continued into 2009. A major outcome was the publication of several online HTML finding aides or guides to the records to enable access to the wealth of knowledge contained in the records. Other outcomes included improved protocols for archiving records including reporting mechanisms, standards and templates for data processing, and new knowledge contributing to the development of the Heritage Document Management System (HDMS).
