PROS 10/13 G4 Transfer of State Archives: Physical Guideline covers the steps required to plan, implement and review a transfer of permanent physical records to Public Record Office Victoria (PROV) custody in order to become state archives. It focuses on the process of completing a specific records transfer project.

Please note: this guideline is now expired, but may continue to provide some assistance for you.

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

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.

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