QUT Digital Collections

Managed by QUT Library, QUT Digital Collections brings together digitised and born digital collections for dissemination to and reuse by the global community. QUT Digital Collections currently holds the following collections, and more digital collections are planned:

QUT ePrints

The papers deposited in QUT ePrints are freely available. This open access ensures the widest possible dissemination and impact for our work and contributes to the growing body of research literature that is now freely available online. Find out more about QUT ePrints policy and purpose.
