A wide range of content both contemporary and retrospective is collected to reflect events, people, places and ideas that continue to shape Queensland. These collections are a resource for current and future generations wishing to understand Queensland.

Materials are collected for their research value and historical significance. Other factors that are considered are provenance, context, representation, uniqueness, condition, completeness, integrity and interpretive potential.

Material may be acquired in a range of formats, from traditional paper-based materials and photographs to digital images and files. We collect both original materials such as diaries, letters and oral histories and published materials with a link to Queensland.
