Exploring cultural heritage in the context of museums, archives and libraries

Abstract:

The exploration of the vast subject of cultural heritage in the context of museums, archives and libraries begins with the need to find an understanding and working definition of what is meant by the term “cultural heritage.” Following that, the critical role that memory and contested history have to play in cultural heritage is highlighted. Perspectives from museums, archives and libraries are examined in terms of theory and practice, as a contextual exploration into mapping the domain for the development of a generic model with which to teach information literacy and cultural heritage for lifelong learning.
