Victorian Bands'
Library &

As part of my duties at the Victorian Bands' League, I have successfully created a small library and archive space at the VBL office. This has involved collating archival material, setting up an index, publishing material on Victorian Collections , making a workable physical space, assessing IT requirements, scanning and using digital storage, and building social media engagement. The long-term aim of this project is to preserve and publish VBL archival material for bands and band persons in Victoria as well as other interested parties. I have also sought to build networks with local, State and National institutions.
