Please note: BRAC's collection covers primarily Public Records - for enquiries regarding newspapers or local history publications, please contact the Goldfields Research desk at the Bendigo Library.

IMPORTANT: While BRAC can assist with advice on which collections can be useful or how to use the collections (refer also Guides), and answer short, specific queries, we do not offer a research service. If you need assistance in this area, please refer to the list of Research Agents.
