Educational Lending Right School Library Survey

Educational Lending Right (ELR) is an Australian Government cultural program administered by the Department of Communications and the Arts. Education Services Australia (ESA) manages the ELR School Library Survey on behalf of the Department of Communications and the Arts.

The ELR School Library Survey collects data used to estimate the number of copies of specific titles held in Australian school libraries. These book counts are the basis for payments to Australian book creators. The payments are to assist book creators and publishers to continue producing Australian books.
