QFHS print library has more than 16,000 printed books and journal titles, located in an air-conditioned room.
We are always adding new or donated titles to our collection. These are displayed in the main room of the Library and Resource Centre for several weeks after accession.
QFHS uses a Library Classification Scheme modelled on that designed for the Society of Australian Genealogists in Sydney, NSW.

QFHS currently receives more than 300 journal titles. We acquire these journals by exchange with other family history societies or by paid subscriptions.
The journals are on display in the print library for three months, after which they are shelved by call number. Some journals are sent out to Country Members as part of our Journal Loan Scheme. Country members may borrow a selection of journals from:
The Library and Resource Centre is a reference library only. Our Reference Library books are not available for loan.
