Summary
"Records and archival arrangements in Australia are globally relevant because Australia's indigenous peoples represent the oldest living culture in the world, and because modern Australia is an ex-colonial society now heavily multicultural in outlook. Archives and societal provenance explores this distinctiveness using the theoretical concept of societal provenance as propounded by Canadian archival scholars led by Dr Tom Nesmith. The book's seventeen essays blend new writing and re-workings and combinations of earlier work and comprise the first text to present a societal provenance perspective to a national setting. The book is divided into four sections. The first part looks at the historical context of archives in Australia; the second part covers the institutions involved in the Australian archival story; the third part discusses the formation of archives; and the fourth part considers the debates surrounding archives in Australia. The book concludes with a consideration of the notion of an archival afterlife." --backcover
