Since our foundation in 1862, SCLQ has provided judicial officers, practitioners and students with access to the most authoritative legal sources.
Many of the books in our collection are rare: a book may be called ‘rare’ for its age, value, beauty or connection to significant individuals or events. Rare books attest to the durability of both the ideas contained within them and the craftsmanship with which they were made.
Our latest major exhibition, So well and diligently set forthe—rare books from the Supreme Court Library Queensland collection, delves into the history of our rare books collection and examines the enduring significance of these objects.
