Need some HERMES training/refresher training?

Heritage Victoria is offering a training session on the online heritage database HERMES, a web delivered database customised to manage information for heritage places. HERMES is managed by Heritage Victoria and used by the Victorian government, the National Trust and local government to record heritage sites in the State.

HERMES is the ‘backend’ database holding information from the Victorian Heritage Register and Heritage Inventory, the National Trust and participating local governments which is publicly available through the Victorian Heritage Database and also on certain local government websites.

HERMES is widely used by heritage consultants to prepare heritage studies. Local councils commissioning heritage studies should require consultants use HERMES as outlined in the standard consultants brief, ‘Heritage Victoria’s Model Consultants Brief for Heritage Studies’ (2010).

The training will also include a session on updating on entering/interpreting archaeological data.
