COVID-19 update: State Library is gradually reopening and more spaces are now available. Check what’s open before you visit.
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.
We'll know more about the photos and it will be easier for people to find them online.
Help make newspapers easier to search and build a better resource for everyone.
You can contribute by sharing your knowledge and expertise.
Transcribe oral histories on Amplify.
The John Oxley Library blog features articles about Queensland’s history, the collections and newly digitised collections. Contributions and guest blogs are also welcome.
State Library welcomes contributions and stories about collections, programs and heritage events in the Queensland Memory e-newsletter.
State Library supports an extensive digitisation program to enable access to Queensland content. Our Toolkit offers general information on getting started, planning for digitisation, best practice and practical advice.
