The Museum has the goal of developing its role as a virtual museum, by progressively making available on-line some of the of rich material held  at the University of Canberra, (as described in our Collection Profiles).

The Museum will also develop links to high quality on-line resources for the history of Australian education held in state archives and other places, consistent with its aim of supporting research and scholarship. Read here the research on Canberra’s centenary of schooling.

ANME also aims to support and promote the work of its school museum members, by bringing together resources concerning museum practice and the emerging discipline of museology.  Please visit our museum practice pages.
