Abstract

Protocols for libraries and archives in Australia: incorporating Indigenous perspectives in the information field

Many Australian cultural heritage institutions are utilising protocols as a way to manage collections with respect to Indigenous cultural values and aspirations. Indigenous protocols for libraries and archives are an important tool for two-way conversations to take place between communities and institutions to establish a dialogue about respectful management of collections. This paper will discuss examples of protocols from Australia including those developed by the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Library Information Network (ATSILIRN), State Records New South Wales (NSW) and the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Data Archive (ATSIDA). It will discuss the importance of education and training in preparing information professionals to be responsive to the needs of diverse communities.
