University of Melbourne’s Award Winning Web Archiving Program

by

The University of Melbourne  were recently recognized for their excellent web archiving program at the Sir Rupert Hamer Records Management Awards.

Each year the Public Records Advisory Council (PRAC) of Victoria, Australia offers the Sir Rupert Hamer Records Management Awards, recognizing excellence and innovation in records management in the Victorian public sector.  The Awards are named after Sir Rupert Hamer who was the Victorian Premier when the Public Records Act was passed in 1973 and when Public Record Office Victoria opened its first office and repository in 1975. 

The ceremony was held at Queens Hall at Parliament House on Thursday 28th of May.  The Web Archiving Program run by Records Services (team included Lucinda Davies – Ptrogram Coordinator, Silvia Paparozzi – Team Member, Mahesh Sundar – Team leader and Catherine Nicholls – Project Manager,) was awarded a “Certificate of Commendation” in the large agency category.  

The University of Melbourne has been an Archive-It partner since January 2008.  Overall they have collected over 5 million URLs and 500 gb of data.

Please take a look at their now award winning program including this wonderful video (featuring puppets!!) they put together at the end of last year.

Congratulations Team Melbourne!
