The Educational Lending Right (ELR) 2010-11 School Library Survey was commenced in the first weeks of term 4 with 600 Australian schools invited to participate.
Participation involves running a small software program or performing an ordinary back up, depending on the library management system. Feedback from schools indicates that participation is quick and easy, taking only minutes to do. From the results we are able to create a book count of titles held in the schools. The Australian Government uses this data to calculate payments to Australian book creators.
Australian book creators highly value the income they receive from this important cultural program.
If you have been invited to participate and have not done so yet, please respond as soon as possible. We have received less than half the required number of responses to make the data statistically viable.
More information is available from ELR 2010-11 or telephone 1800 337 405 (outside Melbourne); 03 9207 9600 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
