The Review of Government agency libraries and research services was undertaken during the period January-June 2010. The research project was sponsored jointly by the Director-General, Department of the Premier and Cabinet, and the Director-General, Department of Public Works. The objective of the project was to examine future options for the Queensland Government library and research services that provide clients with efficient and cost-effective access to the information they need to conduct government business, to develop a picture of the services provided, the information resources managed, the client base and staffing.
The review identified potential options for future service delivery. The key projects to be implemented include the development of a single library and research portal for all government officers; increasing the visibility and accessibility of information and knowledge resources to those officers regardless of their agency affiliation and introducing more cost effective purchasing and licensing arrangements.
