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.


The John Oxley Library blog features articles about Queensland’s history, the collections and newly digitised collections. Contributions and guest blogs are also welcome.
