Over its history, the Library has collected a wide range of journals, magazines and publications that document the life of the Victorian community. During 2010 and 2011 a number of historic collections held by the Library or its partners will be scanned at high resolution and released online.
The Victorian historic publications digitisation project is funded by the Department of Premier and Cabinet to provide online access to unique and important publications from the state’s history, in celebration of the 175th anniversary of European settlement in Victoria.
This State Government funding has allowed the Library and key community partners to digitise and make available:
- Football record from 1912
- Victorian Historical Journal from 1911 until 1954
- Proceedings of the Royal Society of Victoria from 1854 onwards
This is a collaborative project with Slattery Media and the AFL, the Royal Society of Victoria and the Royal Historical Society of Victoria.
