Text Queensland was launched by Professor Paul Greenfield AO Vice-Chancellor of the University of Queensland.   Professor Peter Spearritt, Director of the Centre for the Government of Queensland also gave an entertaining speech.  The launch was attended by a number of staff from State Library of Queensland. 

It is a great website and I encourage you to take a look.
