We connect with communities, and connect communities with their national collections.

Priorites

Extend national reach and engagement, increasing the number and diversity of Australians who engage with national collections.

Curate engaging onsite and digital experiences that delight, inspire and nourish Australians’ curiosity about the nation’s past, present and future.

Actions

Expand Trove’s audience, including among students and diverse communities, and increase the visibility of digital collections from organisations large and small.

Expand engagement with linguistically and culturally diverse communities through delivery of high-quality learning experiences and outreach programs, via a wide range of platforms and delivery mechanisms, for Australians of all ages.

Implement the Library’s first Reconciliation Action Plan in 2020–21, including establishing an Indigenous Engagement Section to support genuine and respectful engagement and connection with First Nations people.

Continue the Library’s ten-year Philanthropy Strategy, leveraging government seed funding to partner with members of the community who share our goal of transforming access to Australian culture, especially through large-scale collection digitisation.
