School Library Guidelines - Information

Further information

School Library Guidelines is produced by Libraries Tasmania. The Guidelines is not Tasmanian Department of Education official policy, direction or advice.

The aim is to support Tasmanian school libraries.


Services to Schools at the National Library of New Zealand kindly gave us permission to adopt their design and structure.

We greatly appreciate the contributions of Tasmanian school library staff to the selection and ordering and space and environment sections. These suggestions provide a starting point, they are not an authoritative list or official Department of Education recommendations.

Special thanks to Jennie Bales and Leonie Atkins for their advice, suggestions and editorial feedback.

School Library Guidelines is based on freely available sources that are acknowledged throughout.


We welcome all feedback and suggestions. Please email your comments.
