The John Oxley Library of State Library of Queensland has been collecting First World War material since it opened in 1934.
While this invaluable material has been preserved, many of the unique and personal Queensland stories held within the John Oxley Library collection are yet to be fully revealed.
Digitisation of these collections is central to State Library's commemorative activities, and by 2019, the material which tells the unique story of Queensland's participation in the First World War will be accessible online for everyone.
