New improved SLQ catalogue

Finding items in the State Library of Queensland (State Library) collection will be easier than ever from 5 March 2018.

State Library has been working on a new look for One Search, our catalogue. One Search is the main entry point for accessing State Library’s collections. It also provides access to online databases, ejournals, ebooks, newspapers and magazines.

The new look One Search has a clean and intuitive interface which allows you to view more information about a resource with fewer clicks. Gone are the tabs within the records. The new user interface is responsive across all devices, allowing it to work better on tablets and smart phones as well desktops and laptops, thus making it easier to find the information you need, faster.

The new design is based on extensive user experience research, meaning it has been designed with you in mind.

  • The search results are easier to work with.
  • Direct, one-click access is provided to full-text items.
  • A database A-Z list is included.

Most of the old functionality remains. You are still able to save items and searches to your favourites, and also email or print records.

Find out more information before we go live.
