Virtual Reading Room

Archives and Special Collections, Student and Scholarly Services, are excited to launch the Virtual Reading Room (VRR), a pilot service designed to extend access to items from the University of Melbourne’s Archives and Special Collections to those who cannot attend campus in person. Using high-resolution cameras and video conferencing technology, we can bring our collections directly to you in a one-on-one online VRR session. Our Wolfvision Visualiser provides a high level of magnification, allow you to see incredible details in our collections material.

If this service may be useful to you, we encourage you to get in touch with us by emailing and beginning a conversation about your research needs, the item(s) you are interested in consulting, and your availability.
