2 It's the first time these key documents have been seen together -- in fact, several have never before been on public display. While most of the documents belong to the Archives collection, two are on loan from other institutions -- the Constitution from Parliament House, and the Proclamation from the National Library. In an annexe to the gallery, visitors can view the Constitutional Alphabet video. It features well-known Australian personalities Peter Garrett, George Negus, Jackie Kelly and others, who explain the A to Z of our constitutional democracy. Community organisations wishing to preser ve their archives may be eligible for a Community Heritage Grant. This year, the National Archives joins the National Librar y of Australia and the Depar tment of Communications, Information Technology and the Ar ts in administering the grants. Any Australian community organisation that collects and provides public access to its documentary heritage collections is eligible to apply. Funding up to $8000 is provided for activities such as general conser vation, storage and environmental control, disaster recovery, reformatting and copying, reboxing, training of staff and education. Applications close in June. For more information see the enclosed flier, or contact Ted Ling at the Archives by telephone on (02) 6212 3936 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. More information about the charters can be found in a special Federation souvenir booklet, Charters of Our Nation, available for sale for $7.95.
