If you’re an author, creator or publisher who has released a book in the last 5 years you may be eligible for lending rights.

4 March 2019

The public and educational lending right schemes recompense Australian creators and publishers for income lost through the free use of books in Australian public and educational libraries.

Payment is based on the estimated number of the specific book held in public and educational lending libraries.

You can easily make and track your claims using our Lending Rights Online portal. Make sure you register now for 2019-20, as title claims need to be lodged by 31 March 2019.

For more information on eligibility and how to register and submit a claim see the Lending Rights page.
