Caring for the collections at the State Library of Queensland

Ever wondered how the State Library cares for its old books, newspapers and photographs? Want to know how to look after your own precious heirlooms? Then come up and see our permanent display, Caring for the Collections.

Every cultural institution has a responsibility to safeguard the collections with which it is entrusted. At the State Library, this important task is undertaken by specialist Collection Preservation staff.

This display contains ‘windows’ into the staff work areas so you can look behind the scenes to see how staff care for the collections – your collections.
