Works about this Work

History and Memory in the Tasmanian Public Library Heather Grant , Heather Gaunt , 2009 single work essay
— Appears in: History Australia , April vol. 6 no. 1 2009; (p. 10.1-10.2)
Although public libraries have been generally characterised in academic literature as repositories of public memory along with museums and archives, little specific work has been undertaken in Australia into how the public library performs this roles, and how the public library influences, or responds to, the development of historical consciousness and the vicissitudes of social memory within its community. This article considers these questions through a case study of the Tasmanian Public Library in Hobart and a particularly culturally significant text, The Hermit in Van Diemen's Land: From the Colonial Times (1829) by Hugh Savery. The circumstances surrounding the acquisition and the subsequent disposal of a copy of The Hermit by the Tasmanian Public Library are examined, in the context of the contested and changing value placed on the text by the institution and members of the community through the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
