References, Journals, Magazines and Catalogues

This entry is part 8 of 9 in the series National Centre for Australian Children's Literature

Dr Belle Alderman tells us about the references, journals, magazines and catalogues held at the National Centre for Australian Children’s Literature as well as the process of acquisition and cataloguing.

Dr Belle Alderman and her team of volunteers at the National Centre for Australian Children’s Literature perform vital work collecting Australia’s literary culture.

The Centre is in dire need of funding to secure suitable premises; much of the collection is in storage because there is insufficient room to shelve the books. Also, art is mostly in storage instead of on display although the Centre makes excellent use of its opportunities to exhibit portions of the collection where possible. I’d like to see a purpose-built Centre with more books shelved rather than stashed in boxes and permanent exhibition spaces displaying gorgeous artwork produced for children’s books.

Let’s make museums and literature fun, with spaces aimed at children, creating a life-long love of reading.

The National Centre for Australian Children’s Literature is on Twitter and has a website. It’s proudly supported by the Children’s Book Council of Australia.
