Title

Enhancing the quality of life for all Queensland communities

The IPWEAQ Knowledge Centre recently achieved global recognition with inclusion in the Library Publishing Directory 2019. The Directory is published by the Library Publishing Coalition in Atlanta, Georgia and details the publishing records of academic and specialist libraries across the world. IPWEAQ’s entry in the Directory features our publishing activities and disciplinary specialties.


The ‘Program Overview’ section in our entry includes the mission statement for the Knowledge Centre, the year publishing activities began, the types of documents contained within the repository and the media formats and platforms used to present them. IPWEAQ’s top publications are listed, and the role the Knowledge Centre plays as a publishing entity is recognised. The Knowledge Centre is the first publishing site for most of the papers delivered as conference proceedings and the directory awards it a rating of 4 (on a scale of 1-5) for its ‘stage of publishing efforts’. This recognition has come after only two years since the Knowledge Centre’s inception. This bodes well for future development and expansion of the repository and the likelihood of continuing inclusion in this and other international publications going forward.


The IPWEAQ Knowledge Centre is fully searchable by subject, key words, speaker/author, event, type (image, podcast, articles, PowerPoint etc) or by date. It includes videos, articles, PowerPoint presentations, podcasts, reports, case studies, recent media and other information on engineering in the public works sector of interest to Queensland practitioners.
