This subject provides an introduction to the development and promotion of local history and archive collections. It will examine the role of local histories for a community; the place of libraries in building collections of such histories; and the nature of such collections, focusing on local newspapers, oral history, photographs, other paper-based materials, memorabilia and digital media such as digital photographs, websites and blogs. It will also examine the place of organisational archives in providing a history for an organisation as it evolves over time and place and how such archives may be promoted to management.
