Queensland stories

What are digital stories?

Digital stories are short videos that tell a person’s unique story. They can use a combination of images, sound, narration, animation, video and music. State Library of Queensland uses digital storytelling to capture a diverse range of Queensland stories. Investigate the Digital Storytelling Manual for assistance. View these stories through State Library’s catalogue One Search or our Vimeo channel.

Oral history

State Library actively collects oral histories that reflect Queensland history. These are generally extended interviews recorded in audio or video format. Collection highlights include interviews with inductees into the Queensland Business Leaders Hall of Fame, the James C. Sourris Artists Interview Series and the LGBT Lives collection.
