La Trobe University Archives

The Repository, Publications & Archives team in the Library is responsible for the management and development of the La Trobe University Archives.

Our Archives support a living, accountable, inclusive and accessible history of all La Trobe University communities. This history extends from the organisations that formed our university in the 19th century, to the lived experiences of current staff, students and communities.

Histories matter because they tell us where we’ve been, where we’re going and who we are. Our Archives tell this story with respect and sincerity, acknowledging the challenges of the past and celebrating achievements. We prioritise the lived experiences of students, staff and communities involved with and impacted by La Trobe University.

Our collection includes:

  • meeting papers of University committees
  • strategic plans, policies, procedures, guidelines and correspondence
  • photographs
  • artefacts such as uniforms and practicum utensils
  • personal papers
  • records and artefacts from antecedent institutions such as the Bendigo School of Mines, the Northern District School of Nursing, the Bendigo Teacher's College, the Lincoln Institute of Health Sciences, the Bendigo College of Advanced Education, etc.
