Collections Australia Network

Collections Australia Network (CAN) is the Australian online cultural heritage and collections gateway to over 1,500 collecting institutions and their collections. CAN is jointly funded by the Australian Government and the State and Territory Governments through the Cultural Ministers Council.

CAN has been developed specifically to meet the needs of professionals and volunteers working in small and medium collecting institutions.


CAN does not have its own collection, however CAN hosts and maintains an online searchable collections database which contains records from over 90 CAN Partners.
