The Lending Right schemes recompense Australian creators and publishers for free access to their eligible books in Australian public and educational lending libraries.
If you are a book creator – author, editor, illustrator, translator or compiler – or a publisher you may be eligible for Lending Right payments. Books not previously claimed and published between 1 January 2015 and 31 December 2020 may be eligible. All claims need to be lodged by 31 March 2021.
