Text Queensland - Queensland's past online

By JOL Admin | 3 October 2011

A wonderful new Queensland history resource has been launched by the Centre for the Government of Queensland.

Text Queensland features full text books, journals, theses, government publications and newspapers. 

A range of University of Queensland Press publications have been digitised along with a selection of out of print books about Queensland.  Full text journals include the Journal of the Royal Historical Society of Queensland (1914-1994) and of particular note are Pugh's Almanac (1859-1927) and Queensland Government Gazette (1859-1900).

Pugh’s Almanac, 1914

Text Queensland was launched by Professor Paul Greenfield AO Vice-Chancellor of the University of Queensland.   Professor Peter Spearritt, Director of the Centre for the Government of Queensland also gave an entertaining speech.  The launch was attended by a number of staff from State Library of Queensland. 

It is a great website and I encourage you to take a look.
