Resource Location and Arrangements

The RSL has generously allowed Kenmore and District Historical Society (KDHS) to store files, its library and research material as well as a computer in the Research Room located in the RSL rooms at Fairview.  The room is a place where students are encouraged by the RSL to research from the RSL’s collection, and where members of KDHS can view the society’s research material.  This material may be stored elsewhere as decided by the committee from time to time.

Arrangement

  1. KDHS will store various hard-copy material in the room or elsewhere. This will include:
    • closed administration files
    • completed project files (both administrative and research)
    • secondary resource material in folders
    • original photographs in acid-free storage
    • primary resource material in acid-free folders
    • copies of the research catalogue and archive file list
  2. KDHS will set up a PC in the room which will be linked to the internet. The PC will contain:
    • KDHS file and catalogue lists
    • Digital photographs
    • Oral history recordings (and possibly transcripts)
    • Research reports
    • Other material relating to the history of the Kenmore District
  3. KDHS policy is that neither members nor non-members should visit the room on their own as this may cause disruption to the important work being undertaken by the RSL.  An appointment can be made by contacting the Committee at kenmorehistory@gmail.com
  4. KDHS members have free access to all KDHS research material.  Books are a reference collection and cannot be removed from the room. A scanner/printer is available for scanning material on to a USB or for photocopies. If photocopying is required there is a fee of 20 cents per page to cover paper and ink costs.
  5. Directions Fairview Aged Care Facility is located at 2063 Moggill Road, Pinjarra Hills.  The RSL is located around the back of the Aged Care Facility.  Drive in the main entrance to Fairview, turn left and drive past the entry to High Care. The road continues as a one-way road around to the left; drive right around to the back, past the back of the High Care Facility. You will see a car park off to the left which is where you can park.  The RSL building (Block 5) is quite visible from the car park – the Australian Flag flies from the flag pole in front.  The Research Room is located at the very end of the centre corridor, on the right.  There is a visitors’ book near the front entry and the RSL requests that all visitors sign in.
  6. Facilities There are toilets in the building.  A kitchen is also available, with free tea and coffee.  Water is also available.
