Researching the archives

Queensland State Archives provides a range of services for researchers accessing our Public Search Room at Runcorn, as well as for remote users. Information and services available include:

All records held at Queensland State Archives are listed in its information management system, Archives One. The primary finding aid to locate all records held is the online catalogue, ArchivesSearch.

Computers finding aid

In addition to ArchivesSearch, there are a range of secondary finding aids available to researchers. The following aids can only be used to search various types or parts of records held at Queensland State Archives:

A select number of items from the collection are being digitised. For example, view our selection of digital images covering the Stinson plane crash inquest. As more items are made available they will be added to the New to the archives page.

qsa bulletin

Queensland State Archives has established the qsa bulletin, an electronic bulletin to inform the public of our programs, initiatives and collections. The bulletin is not an interactive discussion forum. Those who subscribe will receive information, but are unable to broadcast their own messages.

To receive the qsa bulletin via email, please subscribe to our list.

Queensland State Archives volunteer program

Queensland State Archives has a team of volunteers who assist in the creation of valuable finding aids, such as indexes, which make it easier for researchers to locate information.  Numerous indexes are available on our website and more are being created. Volunteers also assist with basic preservation tasks, such as removing metal clips from files and cleaning records. Volunteers generally work one day per week.

If you are interested in this program, please contact our Volunteer Co-ordinator on (07) 3131 7777.
