State Library of Queensland’s (SLQ) operational plan includes a commitment to co-create Queensland’s memory by collaborating with people and organisations to develop, collect, share, and create Queensland stories for current and future generations.

To achieve this, the Conservation Unit at SLQ assists staff and the public to ensure the longevity of Queensland’s documentary heritage. These collections can be distributed through agencies, interest groups and people’s personal treasures at home.
