Inside the Repository
The University of Melbourne Archives' repository is usually off-limits to everyone except UMA staff. But we have a wonderful time working in the repository and wanted to share what happens behind those locked doors with our curious patrons.

Malcolm Fraser collection
The Malcolm Fraser Collection at the University of Melbourne comprises documents, photographs, books and other material relating to the life, family and career of the Rt Hon. Malcolm Fraser, Prime Minister of Australia from 1975 to 1983.
