Significance Definition

"Significance refers to the value and meanings that items and collections have for people and communities. Significance helps unlock the potential of collections, creating opportunities for communities to access and enjoy collections, and to understand the history, cultures and environments of Australia". From Significance 2.0 a guide to assessing the significance of collections, by Roslyn Russell and Kylie Winkworth for the Collections Council of Australia Ltd. (Now axed - This may still be available online as a PDF - Search title).

Treasures of significance, such as documents, and manuscripts that are not found in any other collecting institutions can be found among these listings from the KHS Library accessions. Even more interesting material is in collections from the KHS Archive, which has not yet been placed online.
