|This audit is one of several pieces of strategic work that the Library Board of Victoria, through the State Library, is undertaking in partnership with public libraries.
This is the first statewide audit of public library collections undertaken in Australia. J.L. Management Services was commissioned to undertake the work, and its report is independent. It has not been endorsed by either the Library Board of Victoria or the Victorian public library network.
The report findings and recommendations are both wide-ranging and far-reaching. As the Board and public libraries formulate a response to the report, comments are being sought from a range of stakeholders and will be accepted until 4pm on Thursday 12 April 2007. The address for receiving comments is contained within the report.
