Catalogued Collection

In this section you will find a full listing of all the holdings in BRAC’s collection which can be ordered through PROV’s catalogue.

You can also find a full, searchable listing on the PROV website HERE or use the Bendigo Reading Room-specific search function HERE.

Simply click on each Series Title in the table to go to the PROV site where you can order the record or read a short description of the agency that created it, its purpose and contents.


For some of our more regularly accessed records, we have more detailed Guides available that gives examples of contents, descriptions of geographic coverage, and how to navigate the records for your research:


Collection Guide – Rate Books

Collection Guide – Council Correspondence

To go directly to a record set within PROV's catalogue to order, you must COPY the link from the table below and PASTE into a new browser page. Clicking PROV links will take you to a generic search page rather than the specific archives you're looking to order.

For more information on ordering and accessing records, visit the Access page.
