história

The University Archives were established by the Council of the then Victoria University of Technology in 1992 in co-operation with the Office of the University Secretary and Registrar. The role of the Archive was 'to preserve the records and associated materials of the University and its predecessor institutes [sic] in compliance with the Public Records Act 1973 and as a service to future researchers.' For further information about the history of Victoria University see https://libraryguides.vu.edu.au/c.php?g=561508&p=3864790#s-lg-box-wrapper-14146690

Records date from 1916 with the establishment of the Footscray Technical School. They document the University's continuing relationship and engagement with its local community.
