Our onsite repository at the University of Canberra holds our collection of historic text books, journals, manuscripts, photographs, artefacts and ephemera. Five themes organise our interpretation of the archival material: Policy, Administration, Curriculum, Practice and Innovation. A virtual representation of the collection is found on our eHive profile. The contributions of our network members are found under Our Community.
Celebrating Australia's educational heritage since 1996
Our mission is to promote an historical understanding of Australian education through the development of our collection, through support for research and through collaboration with our network of school museums.
The ANME is an integral part of the University of Canberra, sponsored by the Faculty of Education and the Faculty of Arts and Design. We provide an onsite repository for research for pre-service and practising teachers and training for students of heritage, conservation and museology.
ANME offers opportunities to scholars for research and scholarship in the history of education. We conduct regular field trips to school museums and hold seminars and an annual lecture. We publish research monographs and on-line resources.
ANME is committed to promoting the development of a national network of school museums. Membership of ANME includes registration on the National Register of School Museums. We promote collaboration among members about museum practice. We offer a repository for selected archival material held in communities and privately.
