Public Record Office Victoria (PROV) strives to improve the state of recordkeeping across Victorian Government. This objective is pursued, in part, through engagement in research and development programs and projects. Much of this important work also aligns to the Victorian Electronic Records Strategy (VERS).

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.
