We are pleased to publish a resource developed from Significance 2.0 – the Significance 2.0 summary card.
This card provides a summary of the 10-step significance assessment process, presented as a checklist. On the flipside the primary and comparative significance criteria are listed, and some basic guidance is given on how to use them.
The card is designed to be printed and used as a ready reference for your significance assessment work.
Significance e-learning module
You also may be interested in the Significance e-learning module developed by the Canberra Institute of Technology. It is based on the first edition of Significance: a guide to assessing the significance of cultural heritage objects and collections (2001), and therefore focuses on single item significance assessment. The Collections Council of Australia was an industry partner for this project, which was funded by the Australian Flexible Learning Framework.
You can view the Significance e-learning module at www.industry.flexiblelearning.net.au/actinnovations/significance/html/01_index.html
Upon successful completion of the Significance e-learning module, participants gain a nationally accredited unit of competency (Research, describe and document cultural material CULMs610C).
To formally enrol in the Significance e-learning module or for more information, contact Deborah Bowman or Toni Purnell at the Canberra Institute of Technology on (02) 6207 4348.
In 2002, Museums and Galleries New South Wales developed with the Heritage Collections Council Training Significance: Using Significance – a guide to assessing the significance of cultural heritage objects and collections.
