Stephanie Ryan

Stephanie Ryan has been the Senior Librarian in Family History at the State Library of Queensland for over 23 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 newspaper and magazine 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 collections 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.
