Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


This Stage One report is a scoping study, involving high-level research into the
sources for aviation heritage (including collections, archives, people and places).
The aim of this report is to understand the nature and range of collections,
archives, places and stories that make up aviation heritage in Australia, while in
the next stage of the project, these sources of heritage will be further analysed to
determine key issues including relative values, accessibility, preservation, risks,
stakeholders, viability and sustainability. The information and data gathered here
thus forms the basis for the development of an innovative digital heritage portal
that aims to raise the profile of aviation heritage and allow diverse audiences to
connect with it.
