The Parochialism Of Queensland State Library
In A Written Response To The Smartboard Proposal, (18/8/1999)

Dear Mr Atkinson,

With reference to your letters of 9 July 1999 to the State Librarian and 23 July 1999 to the Director, Policy, Research and Planning, I appreciate your concern about the condition of certain books in the State Library's collections............

The State Library of Queensland's primary responsibility for preservation is for material unique to and about Queensland.. There is a pilot digitisation project in progress at the moment using photographs, for which we own the copyright, from our extensive historical Photograph Collection.........

Yours faithfully
Pam Chapman
