How to contribute

Queensland's cultural heritage, knowledge and documented history is held in public libraries, Indigenous Knowledge Centres, historical societies, community museums, regional galleries, schools, universities, community spaces, private collections and businesses across Queensland. Each contributes to the preservation of Queensland's memory.

State Library of Queensland is dedicated to making its digital collections more visible and accessible online so that everyone can use and share them, now and in the future. You can help by becoming a digital volunteer! Check out the projects below to tag, text-correct, transcribe and help tell Queensland stories.
