State Library Of Queensland, Brisbane

4.7
Although the seating sections in this top-class facility are quite comfortable, State Library Of Queensland is far more than just a place to read books. You’ll discover a strong reference section, access to computers, and workshop areas. A digital culture center called The Edge offers Internet training. The library houses the 1892 Manifesto of the Queensland Labour Party to the people of Queensland and The Margaret Lawrie Collection of Torres Strait Island Materials, both recognized by UNESCO’s prestigious Memory of the World Australian Register. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Brisbane trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

    I really like the lecture program offered by the library where you have chances to listen and talk to the thought leaders of the world. Attached is a few photos taken on British mathematician Sir Timothy Gower' speech on open access to scholarly publication.

    Would recommend the 2nd or 3rd floors when using the computers. You can remain logged on for 3 hours and are considerably quieter than the ground floor.
