Discussion and announcement lists

The State Library of Queensland's list service, which uses Lyris to host the lists, provides convenient, email-based announcements and discussions to facilitate information exchange, foster collaboration and support professional communication and development within the Queensland Public Library community.

We host a range of lists for Queensland public library staff use. (We also host lists for Queensland government departments and agencies.)
