Conclusion: summary observations and a way forward

Abstract:

Chapter 7 summarizes the key observations found from the exploration of cultural heritage and contested history and memory, as well as from the exploration of perspectives from museums, archives and libraries, digital information contexts, information literacy models, critical thinking skills and lifelong learning. Some observations on the tenets of the model and its practical application have been added, and some illustrative examples of the trend of convergence between museums, archives and libraries are given before concluding with suggestions for a way forward.
