Plan your visit to Fryer


Visiting special collections and archives is different from visiting libraries because of the unique and irreplaceable nature of the collections. Planning ahead of your visit and knowing what to expect when you arrive will help to improve your experience of the Fryer Library and the University of Queensland Archives.

Searching the collection

Search our collections before you visit or contact us to discuss your research needs.

Registering & requesting

UQ affiliated members should bring their relevant ID to the Fryer desk (UQ staff, student cards, UQ Library community membership cards).
If you aren't affiliated with UQ, register as a Fryer visitor. You will be issued with a membership card to use to access Fryer material.

Request your items before your visit. The items will be ready when you arrive.

Accessing your material

Material from collections in the Fryer Library may not be borrowed but are available for use in the Reading Room. Be familiar with our Reading Room guidelines.

Copying in Fryer

The Fryer Library provides a copying service for unpublished, fragile material. Both copyright clearance and the preservation of unpublished material will affect whether or not copies can be provided. View our copyright guidelines.
