"The way Australians think and live is captured in our collections. These collections reflect Australians? lives in myriad areas at different times in our development?they provide insights into our unique national spirit and values, and contribute to our ability to solve new problems in distinctively Australian ways. Just as Australians are spread across a vast land, so our collections are distributed across the nation. Understandably, many different ways have been created to identify and care for our collections, in response to their type, location, or available resources. Whether located in the country or the city, significant collections occur throughout Australia?often in surprising places. 'Significance 2.0: a guide to assessing the significance of collections' builds on the solid foundation laid by the first edition of Significance (2001) in defining an adaptable method for determining significance across all collections in Australia. Those who have been guided by this ?significance method? since 2001 report that this has translated into better decision-making about their collections in areas like preservation, physical and digital access, and funding support." - foreword.
