Hi Kerry and all (esp Queenslanders),

I've now done a batch upload of everything marked as "copyright expired"
(~4600 images).  The Commons category is here:
https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Photographic_material_from_the_Q
ueensland_State_Archives

I'd appreciate any help in categorization.

Toby

Thanks Kerry,
The full image collection looks consistently formatted, so might be easy
enough to import as a batch upload:
http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Batch_uploading (checking for
copyright expiry each time).  Let me know if anyone wants to pursue this.

Queensland State Archives are putting some of their image collection on
Flickr:

The good news for us is that many of the older ones are CC-BY (newer ones
are "All rights reserved"). 

 

And there is a much larger image (and other digitised documents) collection
on the QSA's website:

 

http://www.archivessearch.qld.gov.au/Image/ImageBasicSearch.aspx

 

where it seems the older photos are labelled "Copyright expired" without any
requirement for attribution being mentioned. Not sure why there would be
this difference, but I guess it doesn't matter too much either way for
loading onto Commons.

 

Tip for the novice on the QSA website, there are 2 types of searches: one on
the catalogue and one on the digital collection. Make sure you are using the
"image search" (digital collection) and not the "archive search" (paper
collection), unfortunately the way they do the linking between pages can
sometimes switch you back into "archive search" mode and you wonder why you
can't find something you found earlier.
