The Records Management Network (RMN) provides a forum for knowledge exchange and discussion on issues affecting records management in the Public Sector. It offers an opportunity for records management professionals to connect and network with colleagues from across government and hear from speakers who have improved and/or transformed recordkeeping practices in their organisation. Registrations to attend the May RMN are now open.

Time and Tide exhibition launch

Victorian Archives Centre
99 Shiel Street, North Melbourne

More than 1600 negatives collected by J.B.O Hosking, Melbourne Harbour Trust Chief Engineer from 1936 to 1959, have been painstakingly indexed and digitised by Public Record Office Victoria volunteers. The black and white images depict Port of Melbourne facilities and activities including the development of Appleton Dock and the evolution of the Williamstown and Port Melbourne wharfs. Five volunteers spent more than three years bringing the records to life, with two volunteers and a committee of staff curating their favourites for this photographic exhibition. 

Celebrate the launch with us this National Volunteers Week.
