Queensland's Indigenous Strategy Reference Group (ISRG) is a Queensland University Libraries Office of Cooperation (QULOC) working group formed in 2017 to review and report on the progress of QULOC libraries' actions and activities in meeting the targets of the 'Universities Australia Indigenous Strategy 2017-2020' report (bit.ly/2FL7Vyn). After completing a literature review and report, the group developed a policy tool to facilitate an Indigenous Australian focus within library policies, standards and procedures. The policy is designed to be used with a maturity model, enabling and complementing existing reconciliation action plans and work already underway at member libraries. Beyond these initial actions, the group agreed it was essential to continue to meet to address entrenched inequalities and issues, and advocate for change. Members share information and resources to help improve library engagement with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, researchers and professional staff.
