State Library of Queensland—digital by design

The development of a Digital Strategy has been identified as a key priority for State Library of Queensland (SLQ) in 2017–18.

SLQ provides access online to digital collections and other content for use and re-use, digital experiences in our exhibitions and events, digital inclusion initiatives such as Tech Savvy Seniors and Deadly Digital Communities, and much more.

We want to continue to grow as a vibrant 21st century library and fulfil our vision to enable the growth of knowledge, innovation and enterprise in Queensland.

The development of a Digital Strategy will help us move from a first generation digital library to a library that is digital by design. 

We are undertaking consultation with staff, key stakeholders and, through this survey, members of the public—those who know and use the library, and those who do not. 

The survey will take around 10 minutes to complete.
