Title: A collection of words | Literary collections at the University of Melbourne Archives

URL: http://umaliteraryarchives.wordpress.com/

Description: The purpose of this blog is to bring to light material that deserves its place in Australian literary history as well as to provoke discussion and inspiration amongst those interested in the past, present and future Australian literary scene. It is also with anticipation that writers can use material in UMA to help them thematically as well as stylistically, and deepen the context of literature in the collection by contemporary engagement. The literary and publishing collections at the University of Melbourne Archives (UMA) centre on the creation and publication of literary works, as well as the records of unions and organisations that deal with people working in the literary and publishing fields. The collections range from the papers of individual authors, publishing houses, and book collectors to the operational documents of literary journals, trade unions, and printing firms. Whilst the publishing and printing collections contain mainly business and operating records, the literary collections contain a richness of primary material from diaries & notebooks, correspondence, artwork, and photographs.

Title: ARCHIVE for the HISTORY of ECONOMIC THOUGHT

URL: http://cupid.ecom.unimelb.edu.au/

Description: This archive is an attempt to collect in one place a large number of significant texts in the history of economic thought. I have tried to cast my nets as wide as possible including representative texts of all of the major thinkers and schools of thought; and most of the sub-fields of economics. The archive is a work in progress that may never be completed. The field of economic thought is a very large one. The texts are posted primarily for the use of students who might not otherwise have access to these writings.

Title: Grainger Museum

URL: http://www.grainger.unimelb.edu.au/

Description: Grainger's thoughts of establishing an autobiographical museum began in the early 1920s, initially in response to the sudden death of his mother Rose. In a letter to his friend Balfour Gardiner, dated 3 May 1922, Grainger mentioned the idea for the first time: 'All very intimate letters or notes should be deposited in an Australian Grainger Museum, preferably in birth-town Melbourne'. The project developed for some years in Grainger's mind. In the 1955 Museum Legend Aims of the Grainger Museum , Grainger set forth his intentions. Basically, he wanted to stress the creative side of music (composition), rather than the interpretive side (performance). Originally called the 'Music Museum and Grainger Museum', and later the 'Grainger Museum', the building was constructed in two stages between 1935 and 1939, facing Royal Parade on the University of Melbourne campus in Parkville. It was officially opened in December 1938. The Grainger Museum is the only purpose-built autobiographical museum in Australia. The building is in a simple Moderne style with some Arts and Crafts characteristics. It was designed by the University's architect, John Gawler of the firm Gawler and Drummond, in close consultation with Grainger, who funded the construction, staffing and upkeep during his lifetime. The Museum contains not only a large quantity of material from his own life, but much material concerning his musical contemporaries, particularly the lesser-known ones, such as his Frankfurt Group of composers. After many initial hindrances, such as the use of the building for storage and other purposes during and after the Second World War, most of the exhibits (including complex display legends) were finally established during Grainger's last visit to Australia in the mid 1950s, although he never completed the project to the extent that he had hoped. During the 1960s the museum was opened to the public on a regular basis for the first time and in 1966 briefly became the setting for concerts and workshops for jazz and avant-garde music. The following 20 years were a period of consolidation. An extensive programme of cataloguing the Museum's holdings - begun in the mid-1970s by the then curator, Dr Kay Dreyfus - resulted in the publication of several important volumes, including three music catalogues and the seminal book The farthest north of humanness: Letters of Percy Grainger 1901-14. As well as the permanent displays, temporary exhibitions highlighting different aspects of the collection were presented and concerts and cultural events were held. Almost since its opening in the 1930s the Museum suffered from problems caused by the building's location and design. In 2003 the building was closed to the public and the collection relocated to offsite storage. This enabled a major problem of building conservation works to be undertaken under the supervision of heritage architects Lovell Chen Pty Ltd, resulting in improved facilities for the collection, visitors and staff. These works have been funded by the University of Melbourne, the University Library and several generous gifts and bequests. The Museum building reopened to the public on Sunday 17 October 2010 with a new suite of exhibitions, curated by Grainger Museum staff and designed by Lucy Bannyan of Bannyan Wood Pty Ltd. The Grainger Museum is now part of the University of Melbourne Library.

Title: Medical History Museum - Melbourne Medical School

URL: http://museum.medicine.unimelb.edu.au/

Description: The Medical History Museum and its collection were formally established in 1967 in conjunction with the Department of Medical History, under the professorship of Kenneth Russell. The museum itself was opened with generous funding from the Wellcome Institute (now Wellcome Trust), London, in support of study and research in medical history. The collection at this time consisted of a small but well-selected range of medical artefacts that Professor Russell had gradually acquired over time, with a view to opening a museum. This was in keeping with the long-standing tradition of leading medical schools across the world to develop their historical resources as a study collection. Since its opening in 1967, the museum's collection has grown substantially through the donation of documents, photographs, instruments, and records from medical graduates, families and institutions in and around Melbourne. Originally the collection mainly reflected the teaching of medicine at the University of Melbourne and its clinical schools, and the achievements of its graduates from the 1860s to the present day. However, the donation in 1971 of the nineteenth-century Savory and Moore Pharmacy, through a further grant from the Wellcome Trust, and the 1994 acquisition of the Australian Medical Association collection, has seen the scope of the museum broadened to reflect the history of medical practice in Victoria, and more generally the development of Western medicine. The Medical History Museum (MHM) in the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences at the University of Melbourne is the oldest and finest collection of its type associated with a Medical School in Australia. Established in 1967, by Kenneth Russell, a professor in anatomy, with support from the Wellcome Institute, London, the Medical History Museum, the museum covers the history of the Melbourne Medical School and the broader history of medicine in Australia and overseas The purpose of the museum is to encourage appreciation and understanding of the history of medicine and its role in society. The museum stimulates active learning about the history of medicine through research, teaching, and dialogue among communities of students, faculty, scholars, alumni, and the wider public. MHM has an annual program of Exhibitions. It is open to members of the public and functions as a tool for the University’s teaching and research. Tours are available by appointment.

Title: The Chemistry Collection

URL: http://museum.chemistry.unimelb.edu.au/

Description: The School of Chemistry at the University of Melbourne has an extensive cultural heritage collection of over 300 items.

Title: The University of Melbourne - Australian Science and Technology Heritage Centre

URL: http://www.austehc.unimelb.edu.au/

Description: On 3 May 1999 the Council of the University of Melbourne declared the formation of the Australian Science and Technology Heritage Centre (Austehc) in the Faculty of Arts. Austehc will continue the academic, research and heritage activities of the Australian Science Archives Project (ASAP) which was established by Professor R.W. Home in 1985. The Centre will encompass ASAP's original objectives and continue to develop new programs that foster the preservation, promotion and development of the heritage of Australian science, technology and medicine. ASAP's popular online information resources, notably Bright Sparcs, will form the key focus of the Centre's activities. ASAP's 14 years experience at the local, national and international levels provides a solid foundation for the Centre's success. The important network of associations with academic, government and private organisations and individuals will be maintained and developed to further enhance the Centre's crucial role. Austehc will: Establish the infrastructure, through research, development and implementation, to undertake collaborative projects and activities relating to the history and heritage of science, technology and medicine, within the University of Melbourne and with external organisations and individuals; Create and provide access to authoritative information resources dealing with the history and heritage of science, technology and medicine, primarily with an Australian focus, to support academic scholarship, secondary and primary education, and general community awareness; Advance the pursuit of knowledge in the history, archival, museum, heritage studies and information management disciplines through teaching, research and development. The significant corporate archival and records management projects undertaken by ASAP over the past few years has led to the formation of a separate company, ASAP Information Services Pty Ltd. The separation of this commercial work from the academic, research and heritage activities will enable the Centre to maintain a strong focus on its fundamental goals. Along with ASAP's Director and founding staff member, Gavan McCarthy, Austehc has retained an essential core of ASAP's staff with distinctive expertise and knowledge as archivists, researchers, teachers, historians, and WWW-developers. Austehc will continue the self-funded tradition established by ASAP and work to enhance its position within the University of Melbourne and augment its strong links with the Department of History and Philosophy of Science.

Title: University of Melbourne Ewing and George Paton Galleries Archive 1971-1990

URL: http://georgepatongalleryarchive.wordpress.com/

Description: The George Paton Gallery Archive is a collection of material dated between 1972-c.1990 and includes Annual Reports to Visual Arts Board, Australia Council, correspondence, exhibition catalogues, publications, photographs, slides, video recordings, audio recordings, posters and more. The purpose of this blog is to share items of interest to the archivist processing and listing the George Paton Gallery collection and discuss significant connections and events as they arise. The collection is available for access through the University of Melbourne Archives to researchers or anyone interested in art an Melbourne history and culture. An online, searchable list of the collection will be accessible early 2013. The Ewing Gallery was established in the Union building in 1938. In 1971 Kiffy Carter (nee Rubbo) was appointed director of the Ewing Gallery and Rowden White Library, and began a programme of changing exhibitions funded by the Student Union. From 1974 funding also came from the Visual Arts Board of the Australia Council; in that year a meeting room was converted to the George Paton Gallery and it merged with the Ewing Gallery. The Gallery was at the cutting edge of the contemporary art scene in Melbourne, but was increasingly criticized within the student body for catering to the wider art community rather than the student community. It wound up at the end of 1990 after the withdrawal of Student Union funding. The Ewing Collection was transferred to the University Museum of Art. The gallery reopened in 1994 and is still operating today with a focus on serving students and providing a professional experience, not only to University of Melbourne students but all Victorian Art Schools. The calibre and prestige remains high; many aspiring and acclaimed artists and curators have been associated with the George Paton Gallery since its reopening, the gallery itself a significant Melbourne exhibition and cultural venue.
