Are you an author, creator or publisher who has released a book in the last five years? You may be eligible for lending rights.

14 February 2018

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

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

You can now easily make and track your claims using our online portal. Make sure you register now for the 2018/19 program year, as title claims need to be lodged by 31 March 2018.

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