We provide access to a large number of authoritative eresources: online journals, newspapers, magazines and websites, company information and Australian standards, legislation, music scores and recordings and encyclopedias. Much of this information in the eresources is not available freely elsewhere on the web.
Confused about the terminology? Let us try to explain.
All eresources can be accessed at State Library and most are also accessible 24/7 away from State Library with either an SLQ library card or a Queensland Public Library (QPL) account. Visit our Membership page to register now.
There are some eresources which are only available at State Library. Ask us for help in searching these eresources.
