The State Library of Queensland has a Content Strategy which is a high-level vision that provides a common approach to all the State Library’s collection activities. It guides the State Library’s collection development, management and engagement to ensure that the organisation is able to provide the content its users need now and in the future. (See Content Strategy - http://www.slq.qld.gov.au/about-us/corporate/policies/content-strategy)
The John Oxley Library Collection is dealt with specifically in Content Strategy - Memory Collections http://www.slq.qld.gov.au/about-us/corporate/policies/content-strategy/memory-collections
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.
