  1. A Problem of Value

    It is my understanding that one result applying the existing hardcopy disposal paradigm to electronic information and records is the actual loss of a significant proportion of digital records that have been identified as having “permanent” value. Without a change to the management of records, the retention/disposal of digital records will result in a “skewed” outcome.  Effectively only a small proportion of the digital records identified as per…

  3. The Year so far – Electronic Records Research and Development (VERS) (Part 2)

    The electronic information environment is a rapidly changing space, where Government technology, and business applications are regularly updated to ensure they remain relevant. Over the last few years alone, the Victorian Government has strengthened their position in electronic information, by moving to an E*Gov model, and supporting a Gov 2.0 agenda. In responding to these pressures on Government, the VERS Refresh project has delivered a new…

  4. Land

    Much of the tension that arose in the northeast of Victoria came from the friction between the established and the newer social groups that were settling the region. Squattersas they were called, were the original settlers of Victoria in the 1830s. The very earliest of these settled on their own initiative in the 1830s, appropriating large tracts of land for pasturing sheep or cattle. 1862 Land Act Map By the 1860s an independent colonial gove…

  5. Accelerating positive change in electronic records management

      Archives and Manuscripts (the Journal of the Australian Society of Archivists) Vol 39 No2 Nov 2011, edited by PROV’s own Sebastian Gurciullo has an interesting article by Julie McLead, Sue Childs and Rachel Hardiman – Accelerating positive change in electronic records management: headline findings from a major research project (pp65-93).   Though it’s UK orientated, it’s none the worse for that.  To quote from the…

  6. Wiki Warriors: a virtual tool to make our Collection items more accessible

    In the course of my work, I come across a great deal of interesting, curious or downright bizarre material that I would love to share with everyone. Some items are easily identifiable in our catalogue whilst others remain invisible despite our best efforts.  It is a problem that applies especially to material embedded within a much larger record or series. Take for example, the plan of the Rex Theatre in Charlton which accompanied a recent posti…

  8. FAQ – Titling and Metadata

    Original question: When electronically transferring an email into an EDRMS can I change the title of the email in the metadata? There would be no alteration of the original email. In doing this, when we are searching the EDRMS for a document the title of the document could be very different to the actual title of the email. PROV’s answer: PROV has no concerns with an email having a title that is different to the original subject line. This prac…

  9. Archives: An Alladin’s cave of treasures and secrets

    Hanifa Deen explored the wonderful world of archives and found an Alladin’s cave of treasures and secrets for her new book Ali Abdul v The King: Muslim Stories from the Dark Days of White Australia. Once upon a time ‘research’ was a word that intimidated the uninitiated because it was confined to universities, lecture halls and meant thick books bearing impossibly long titles stuck on library shelves in places where you were not allowed…
