Pictorial Power: finding and using images
August 13 @ 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM$20.00 – $30.00
In recent years there has been a sharp increase in what is available digitally.
This includes documents, maps and photographs of people, places, objects and events which can bring a history or a story to life and into immediate focus.
This presentation will look at what is available and where, and what needs to be considered in using this material.
Stephanie has been the Senior Librarian in Family History at the State Library of Queensland for over 20 years.
For the last ten years she has been working more broadly across State Library’s resources as a Research Librarian. Previously she was a high school teacher and teacher librarian. She has participated in radio and television programs, has been interviewed for newspapers and magazines articles, and has presented papers at family and local history conferences. She contributes to the State Library of Queensland’s blogs and writes occasional articles. She has run presentations for societies, libraries and the general public.
Together with other staff she contributes to a free enquiry service of up to 1 hour per enquiry for Queenslanders. This service is backed by the extensive collection of the State’s main library, specialist family history indexes and website listings, research guides and an ever-growing range and diversity of digitized resources. These are freely available and increasingly a focus of interest.
