A significant proportion of a work should:
• be about Queensland; or
• be on a subject of social, political, cultural, artistic, religious, scientific or economic significance and relevance to Queensland
Queensland authorship or editorship alone is insufficient grounds for preservation.
Authority and research value
High priority is given to authoritative publications with long term research value. Selected publications of lasting significance and generally not available in any other format will be selected for preservation
Online publications that are not considered to be authoritative or do not have reasonable research value will not be selected comprehensively. However, representative examples of online publications covering a wide range of subjects documenting Queensland society as represented on the Internet will be archived.
Factors contributing to the selection of new online publications or websites for archiving include:
• intellectual content
• historic value
• rareness or uniqueness
• cultural or associational value for Queensland
• importance for the understanding of Queensland and Queenslanders
• wide-ranging coverage of Queensland
• useful and accurate content
• information on Queensland subjects or groups that are otherwise poorly documented
• potential for enduring value in digital form
• demonstrate new and innovative uses of the internet
Personal websites will usually only be selected if:
• they provide information of significant research value about Queensland which is not available elsewhere
• they are original and are of exceptional quality or of particular interest
• they reflect Queensland regional, cultural and/or social diversity.
