I have been working as a volunteer in the Archives section of the Parramatta Heritage Centre for about five years. I am enjoying my work here because the management and the staff are very friendly and helpful. During my work I learnt a lot about archives that preserves all old records for those who need any information regarding heritage, happenings and decisions. Extreme care has to be taken for their safety and preservation from heat and humidity. The original documents and relevant papers are stored in folders and boxes. To back them up I enter the details in a spread sheet on computer. Working as a volunteer keeps me busy and adds to my knowledge and experience.
