Community Heritage Grant for our Local Studies Collection
Late last year the library was awarded a $4400 grant to fund a significance assessment of its local information collection. This significance assessment is essential as it provides an understanding of why the collection is significant before appropriate decisions about long term management, conservation and interpretation can be made. It can lead to important outcomes including improved resource allocation, enhanced research value and greater community respect for cultural heritage preservation. A qualified assessor will undertake the assessment early in 2012.
