Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    Access to the records in this Series is either through the microfilm copy or via digital images. Due to the historical value of the records, access to the hardcopy originals is closed.

    The microfilm copy of this Series can be accessed in PROV Reading Rooms as Reel 2 of VPRS 6888 Kelly Historical Collection [Microfilm Copies of VPRS 4965, 4966, 4967, 4968, 4969].

    This series has been digitised and is available online. Access to the digitised records is available via the physical records details pages.

  • Function / Content
    This series consists of inward registered correspondence as received by the Chief Secretary's Office, Melbourne. A progressive top numbering system has been used - however, it would appear that the individual file papers have been detached. Folios are thus filed individually.

    Consignment P1 contains low-resolution, digitised copies of records held in consignment P0 of this series. High-resolution copies are located in VPRS 15055 Kelly Historical Collection: Part 3 Chief Secretary's Office [Digitised Series - Archival Quality Master].

  • Recordkeeping System
    The original records are held in the P0 consignment of this series, and are arranged in an imposed order, which is roughly chronological as held since their transfer to the archives. Individual items have been placed in folders which have been numbered sequentially by the archivists responsible for their listing.

    Three sets of copies of these records have been created by PROV. In all instances, these copies retain the folder order imposed by the archives via the folders.

    A microfilm copy of these records was created in the early 1980's for use in PROV Reading Rooms, which is located in VPRS 6888 Kelly Historical Collection [Microfilm Copies of VPRS 4965, 4966, 4967, 4968, 4969]. VPRS 4967 contains low-resolution, digitised copies of records held within that series, which can be accessed online via the physical records details pages. High-resolution copies are located in VPRS 15055 Kelly Historical Collection: Part 3 Chief Secretary's Office [Digitised Series - Archival Quality Master].
