Victorian Archives Centre.

Over the coming months we're making some changes at the Victorian Archives

From 1 July all researchers are asked to retrieve their photocopies from
the information desk located just inside the Reading Room.

From 1 August the Reading Room will be open from 10am to 4:30pm Monday -
Friday and Saturday (when open). This is a small reduction in hours but
from the same date your ordered records will now be available for
viewing from 10am (previously 10.30am).

There are now 2 digital cameras available to use free of charge to
photograph records and we have a supply of USB sticks to purchase for a
small fee if you require one during your visit.

The microform reader printer will be equipped to save to a USB stick
free of charge from 1 August 2011.

All PCs are now equipped with USB drives.

From 1 August photocopy requests will take 25 working days to fulfil.
