School Library Guidelines – Information

Further information

School Library Guidelines is produced by Libraries Tasmania. It is not Tasmanian Department for Education, Children and Young People official policy, direction or advice. 

The aim of the School Library Guidelines is to support Tasmanian school libraries. It is a collection of resources that are freely available and acknowledged throughout. 


Many thanks go to Services to Schools at the National Library of New Zealand who 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 authoritative lists or departmental recommendations.

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


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