A night in the JOL: Exploring local memory — Queensland’s distributed collections

Exploring Local Memory

This event is now in the past.

Did you know there are over 600 collecting organisations across the state of Queensland?

From small rural museums, libraries, archives and art galleries, to large city institutions — they’re all dedicated to collecting Queensland memory. Making these collections accessible and available in the digital world is one of the challenges faced in the 21st century.

Join Katie McConnel, Curator Old Government House and Ewen McPhee, Museum Development Officer for North Queensland, in conversation with Phil Brown, for a look at the distributed collection of Queensland’s memory.

A night in the JOL is a monthly series delving into Queensland’s rich and diverse history. The next event is on 23 October, and takes a look at JOL’s growing collection of architectural records.
