Interested in preserving the University’s unique documentary heritage? The University Archives invites you to help their team.
The University Archives preserve and provide access to the permanent records of The University of Western Australia. These are authentic records that document and illustrate the life and times of the University, its students, staff, activities and governance. The collection reflects the working life, achievements and celebrations of the University from 1913 to the present.
We are looking for volunteers who are interested in contributing to the value of the collection by helping University Archives staff with processing and describing documents, photographs, newspaper clippings and other records to make them more accessible to staff and the community.
We hope that in providing your time and effort you will benefit from the opportunity to develop basic archival skills and will become a part of a like-minded group.
Volunteers will meet weekly for a minimum of three hours on a Wednesday from February to November. Depending on the availability of volunteers and resources, other days could be arranged. As a volunteer it is your choice to nominate what length of time you would like to give to the program.
