Full description

DigiLib is a collection of architecture related images currently divided into three sub-collections –
Brisbane (1 image);
Queensland Contemporary Architects (714 images); and
Queensland Country Towns (842 images).

The Digilib project commenced in 1995 with a grant from the Teaching & Learning Support unit (TEDI) at The University of Queensland. The original database consisted of slides taken between 1976 and 1989 of Queensland Country Towns. These images included a wide range of domestic, public, mining and agricultural buildings as well as streetscapes and landscapes. Between 2007 and 2010 all the slides from the Queensland Country Towns Collection were uploaded to the University of Queensland's digital repository, UQ eSpace.
A new collection comprising slides of Queensland Contemporary Architects, including some architectural drawings and plans, was also added, bringing the total number of images up to approximately 1600. Images are archival TIFFs.
A Thesaurus has been produced as a tool to index the images on the Digilib Database. Terms in the Thesaurus have been compiled from various sources. The main source for architectural terms is the Art & Architecture Thesaurus On Line. Australian terminology is drawn from the APT (Australian Pictorial Thesaurus) and a list of in-house descriptors has been developed to cover specific local conditions. The LC Thesaurus for Graphic Materials I: Subject Terms (TGMI) is consulted for more general terms.

The 'Periods and Styles' used in the Thesaurus have been compiled from:

A pictorial guide to identifying Australian architecture : styles and terms from 1788 to the present / Richard Apperly, Robert Irving, Peter Reynolds ; photographs by Solomon Mitchell. North Ryde, N.S.W. : Angus & Robertson, 1989.

Australian spelling has been used throughout the Thesaurus.
