About Queensland Museum and it's library

The Queensland Museum is a museum of natural history, cultural heritage, science and human achievement that tells the changing story of Queensland, Australia. A popular destination for local visitors as well as visitors from around Australia and overseas, the museum has welcomed more than 23 million visitors since it was established at South Bank in 1986.

The museum regularly hosts national and international touring exhibitions and also provides in-depth education experiences, innovative public programs, early childhood activities and entertaining holiday activities.

The Queensland Museum Library was founded in 1876 with the purchase of Charles Coxen's private book collection. Since then, it has grown into a large and comprehensive collection representing the broad subject interests of the Queensland Museum, with specialisation in the areas of zoology, geology, palaeontology, anthropology, archaeology and more.

Today, the main collection holds approximately 37 000 books and approximately 5 000 serial titles. The museum library's special collections include rare books and expedition reports, , archival material, the Thomas Macleod Queensland Aviation Collection and a personal papers collection.

"We are very pleased to be part of the Queensland Museum's journey as they continue to build and develop their incredible collection." Sarah Thompson, Softlink IC General Manager.

Softlink looks forward to working with the Queensland Museum staff as they continue to grow and develop their collection in Softlink's integrated library management software (ILMS) Liberty.
