State Library offers educators support, professional development, and resources to enhance their teaching practice. Our aim is to empower educators with practical knowledge and skills to assist their students to use State Library collections and services.

Professional development

The State Library is committed to the professional development (PD) of Queensland educators. We support and encourage contemporary pedagogy and practice - our PD events provide practical, hands-on experiences and resources to implement immediately in your classroom.

Arranging your visit

State Library offers an orientation tour for class groups arriving for self-directed study. This brief tour will familiarise students with learning spaces and services required for their study. It is essential to arrange group bookings for study, events and exhibitions through Learning.

8 to 14 years may enjoy exploring some of State Library's treasures with the Secret SLQ app.

Learning notes

To support exhibitions and events, State Library creates learning notes with teaching and learning activities linked directly to the Australian Curriculum. These notes are designed to enhance your onsite experience.
