Event description

Description

State Library of Queensland Tours are a great way for your group to get to know the Library. You will be introduced to State Library spaces and how to access collections and general services. Led by Volunteer Guides, these tours are available for Upper Primary (Years 5 and above), Secondary, Tertiary and adult groups.

The tour takes approximately 45-60 minutes and will begin on Level 1. Please allow additional time to ensure bags are checked in to the cloakroom prior to the start of your tour.

Session times include 10:00am, 11:00am and 1:00pm. Please check your booking carefully to ensure you've chosen the correct time and date.

Days: Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays & Fridays

Where: Check in at State Library of Queensland Reception, Level 1.

If your group has special requirements please contact us directly to discuss how we can assist. If you need to cancel or reschedule your tour please advise us as soon as possible.

School Groups (years 5-12)

One adult supervisor is required for each group of 20 students. It is expected that a supervising adult will accompany students at all times including during independent study.

Number of attendees

A maximum of 60 participants is allowable in one session. Participants will be broken into separate tour groups of a maximum of 20. Large groups may require multiple time-slots.

SLQ Membership

Membership is free, and easy to obtain online. It provides benefits including access to State Library databases, digitised collections and the video training platform Lynda.com. Members can also book study rooms, save searches and use tags in the catalogue. To maximise use of State Library services and collections, we strongly encourage both teachers and students to become SLQ members prior to visiting.

SLQ members wanting ‘borrowing’ privileges need to upgrade their membership on site. To borrow from the collection, students 15 years and under will need to bring a signed parental/guardian consent form. Students 16 years and over require both proof of age and current residential address. If members are requiring upgrade, please choose “Membership Cards” and enter the approximate number. Allow an additional 15 minutes at the end of your tour for this assistance.
