Content Development

The Content Development program provides physical and virtual access to Queensland’s diverse collections and services. This program focuses on meeting the information, learning and cultural needs of Queenslanders by providing inclusive resources and services.

Content Development is responsible for collecting and preserving Queensland’s history and other resources which are useful to Queenslanders. It makes these resources accessible and discoverable, allowing them to be searched and, in many cases, accessed online. Special collections such as the Australian Library of Art, the John Oxley Library of Queensland history, and one of Australia’s foremost music collections are housed at State Library, South Bank.

State Library’s collection of Queensland memory includes maps (such as historic real estate maps), manuscripts, images and other original materials that add to our story. It captures Queensland’s unique memory as it unfolds as a record for tomorrow.
