How might we showcase Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander language materials?
The State Library of Queensland is committed to raise awareness and act to preserve and promote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages in Australia.
The United Nations declared 2019 The International Year of Indigenous Languages. In Australia, approximately 90% of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages are endangered.
To date, we have identified over 90 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages in more than 600 State Library collection items. How do we tell this story by showcasing State Library language materials to users?
