Clarence Regional Library Service (NSW)

Local Studies Review and Strategy

Project Description: Review local studies collection practices across the Clarence Region, including an analysis of the current practice of the library and regional history groups/organisations and individuals.

The review included:

  • Consultation with key stakeholders, including staff, Council officers, historical and family history societies, museums and the community
  • Review and benchmarking of current heritage collection practice i.e. a review of practice at other public library services
  • Review of current operational and capital investment in local studies by the region

As a result of the review a set of recommendations has been developed that forms the basis of a regional local studies strategy for both the library and other interested groups, organisations and individuals.

Project outcomes

A Local Studies Strategy that provides:

  • A common / core set of overall goals, objectives and strategies for the library’s ongoing local studies service delivery
  • A cohesive and practical local studies service delivery model that meets contemporary standards and guidelines
  • A collaborative and community approach to the ongoing collection, preservation, dissemination and promotion of the region’s history
  • Opportunities to learn and share information / knowledge
