Formatted abstract Much of the material listed in this bibliography is in an ephemeral format; the leaflets, posters and handouts prepared by organisations to promote a cause. It is a potentially useful source for the writing of political and social history. One of the reasons for this bibliography is to bring this Fryer collection to the notice of researchers.

Many of the organizations listed emerged around a specific issue and remained in existence only until that issue had been resolved or gone out of fashion. Often their names were not formally established and were subject to variation. Greg George's historical notes do a great deal to sort out the resulting confusion.

Work on this bibliography grew from the Fryer Librarian's interest in clarifying the Fryer Library's collection policy for primary source mater ial. One starting point was to analyse the primary material which has been collected over the years in order to identify existing strengths. From such an analysis a collection policy could be developed which would ensure that the collectioo was as relevant as possible to probable future research and within the likely financial resource s which the Library lliould have available. Ephemeral material relating to Queensland is one of several categories of primary material which the Fryer Library holds.           .................................
