Carman-Brown, Lesley; Henderson, Kandy-Jane; Wallace, Lesley
Australian Academic & Research Libraries, v36 n1 Mar 2005
In creating Australia's first prime ministerial library, a new cultural institution was developed which blends professional practice from the fields of librarianship, education, archives, journalism and museums. The John Curtin Prime Ministerial Library honours the contribution of wartime prime minister John Curtin, works towards the advancement of knowledge and the enrichment of culture, and provides a gateway for the community to learn about its past in order to build a better future. It aims to fulfil this purpose by developing a unique research collection and a varied outreach program for the educational sector and general community. (Contains 16 notes.)
