MCC unlocks its archives

Apr 20, 2012

Not everything in the MCC Archives is fully accessible, but cataloguing and improved storage are ongoing tasks for the club.Significant documents relating to the fascinating history of the Melbourne Cricket Club (MCC) are now available to researchers, with the launch of a system of research access to the MCC Archives.

MCC Archives holds a storehouse of memories illustrating the history of the MCC, its management of the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG)and other facilities, and its management of club’s Sporting Sections.

The MCC story is one of vision, dedication and endeavour. It is also a rich source of historical, biographical and general information and contains fascinating social and cultural details of the life and times of Melbourne over more than 150 years.

Most items in the MCC Archives are rare examples of documentary heritage, so the storage area is not a self-service environment for researchers.The MCC Archives Access Policy defines how researchers may use the collection and provides details of the reference and research services available from MCC Archives personnel.

The policy establishes a registration system for all users of the archives (including MCC members, staff and volunteers) and introduces a system of charges for copying and digitisation services. 

Most of the fees and charges will be waived for MCC members, staff and volunteers.

This significant collection will be of interest to MCC members, MCC volunteers, MCC staff and the wider MCC community, as well as to the public and academic researchers.

Access to the MCC Archives is strictly by appointment.
