State Library of Queensland - Collection items in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages

This open data file contains bibliographic metadata for over 600 collection items identified in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages at the State Library of Queensland.

The State Library of Queensland is committed to raise awareness and act to preserve and promote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages in Australia. To date, we have identified over 90 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages in more than 600 State Library collection items. These language materials are books, music, computer files, journals, visual works and archival collections. Some materials aren’t found anywhere else.

The metadata in these records is the key to users discovering and accessing the valuable language materials inside and outside the library catalogue. In 2019, the metadata was enhanced with updated reference names and codes as part of the AUSTLANG national code-a-thon. The AUSTLANG database is managed by the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies and includes geographic, historical, classification and research information about each identified Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander language.
