Description:

State Library of Queensland plays a lead role in serving all Queenslanders, through state-wide library services and partnerships with over 340 public libraries, including 23 Indigenous Knowledge Centres (IKCs). Founded in 1896, we have become a bold and adventurous 21st century library driven by a commitment to access for all. SLQ belongs to the people of Queensland. It is an inclusive and welcoming place for all, a trusted source for information, and a place for intellectual freedom, a cornerstone of democracy and custodian of Queensland’s memory. SLQ is a ‘knowledge bank’ and vital community resource, as much a physical as well as a virtual place for sharing, learning, collaborating, and creation. As a community hub for democracy in action, here everyone is encouraged to have a voice. State Library has a vital role in preserving and sharing Queensland'€™s history, collecting contemporary and retrospective content that chronicles events, people, places and ideas that continue to shape Queensland.
