Collections Culture at UQ

UQ commitment to its collections of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander significance is strong. There are collections of significance across the Anthropology Museum, the UQ Library, the Fryer Library, the UQ Art Museum, the RD Milne Antiquities Museum, and the Marks-Hirschfield Museum of Medical History to name a few.

Sandpit in the Sandstone is working strategically and collaboratively across UQ from the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences to improve Indigenous Research capability as part of the University of Melbourne Indigenous Data Network project of the Australian Research Data Commons HASS and IRC program.

This photo gallery shows some of the connecting-up happening in Collections Culture at UQ!
