The State Library of Queensland (SLQ) provides a wide range of primary and secondary material relating to family history research for the use of Queenslanders. As part of a new strategic priority Queensland Memory: Today for tomorrow, State Library commissioned a QUT research team to prepare this scoping document, which examines the current family history services and investigates the establishment of an in-house Family History Centre. The report is designed to create a fresh vision of how personal, community and family history services could be integrated within the mission and brand identity of State Library of Queensland to create a centre of excellence focused around the connections between personal histories, lifelong learning and public knowledge, via the strengths of the SLQ collections and the expertise of its staff.
It provides concrete suggestions for innovative implementation ideas that will realise the clear potential of family history research and related services to bring together the most important current and future aspects of what a 21st century library is and does.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
