Our Reading Room staff delivered a number of information sessions to the public on how to use the Public Record Office Victoria collection and sessions focusing on specific areas of the collection. In 2014–2015 our online enquiry system was launched to manage incoming reference queries. Over a twelve-month period, the system dealt with on average 759 queries per month; providing a more consistent and seamless approach to customer service.
