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.

The Germaine Greer Archive at the University of Melbourne comprises documents, photographs, books, magazines and born-digital audio, video and text media that document the life and career of Germaine Greer, a major figure in academic and popular culture in Australia and internationally.
Malcolm Fraser collection
