The Association of Ukrainians in Victoria Archive (AUV Archive) is the repository of a substantial collection of physical and digital records which have accumulated since the establishment of the Association of Ukrainians in Victoria (AUV) in 1949.
The AUV Archive aims to preserve this collection and make it accessible to members of the AUV, the public and researchers.
AUV Archive Contents
The AUV’s archival holdings were ordered and catalogued in 2018-2022 through a joint project conducted by the AUV and the Mykola Zerov Centre for Ukrainian Studies at Monash University and funded by the Ukrainian Studies Foundation in Australia.
The AUV Archive contains paper records, records on audio-visual and digital media, and some physical objects such as textiles and art works. The collection spans the period from the early 1950s to the 2010s. The holdings are organised into 31 series, 101 sub-series and more than one thousand folders (as at May 2023). These are detailed in the anonymised overview of the Archive available through the link below:
