Have you seen a Queensland image in a book or TV show and wondered where it came from? While thousands of copyright free images are downloaded from One Search each year, the Image Order service provided by SLQ’s Collection Access still receives requests from around the world for reproductions of non-digitised or copyright reserved images.
Recent requests include:
- From Northumbria University, (UK) – St George Society celebrations in Barcaldine, ca 1905 (pictured), for inclusion in a new book;
- From Victoria (Canada) – Mr and Mrs Nind in their garden, for a lecture to Friends of the British Columbia Archives;
- From Austin, Texas – The Courier-Mail front page, 11 October 1990, for a birthday present.
State Library’s images were also in this month’s Australian Story (ABC) program about a 1947 crime in Brisbane City.
So, next time you see a Queensland image, take a look to see if it is an SLQ image.
Comment here to let us know how you are putting some of SLQ’s images, or your own local history images, to good use.
