Picture Queensland images now available through One Search

The Picture Queensland collection, formerly available through the Queensland Digital Library, is now available through One Search, the main entry point for searching State Library’s resources.

One Search now provides access to State Library’s South Bank collections and almost 50,000 images from the pictorial collections of the John Oxley Library. Other digital collections, including images from Picture Queensland contributors and Queensland Stories will be added to One Search over the next few months.  

Discovery through One Search comes with a significantly faster search experience with no limits on the number of search results returned. One Search also offers clients a number of social networking tools, including tagging and commenting as well as the ability to store favourite records. Try it!

I would rather that you kept picture qld on the catalogue as it is much harder now to find pictures

The One Search link doesn't work (1 Dec 2020)

Thank you Walter. The link has been updated so you can view the Picture Queensland content through One Search
Kind regards,
