Among the special collections of The University of Queensland are items of rarity, beauty, curiosity and cultural significance. These items connect us to our history and inspire our imagination. We are pleased to share them with you. These digitised photographs, manuscripts, architectural plans, and oral histories provide a glimpse into the troves of the Library and let you explore the stories they tell.
