Information about the Drug Info book collection in your library.
The Drug Info book collection is a collection of up to ten plain English books about drugs and alcohol. It is a standardised collection, held by every library service in NSW. Each library service has two copies of the books in the Drug Info book collection. Public libraries may choose to make these items available for loan or keep them together as a set in their reference collection. Books may be interfiled within the library's main collections.
The Drug Info book collection is updated by State Library Drug Info staff annually. The Drug Info contact receives notification either by email or post that the Drug Info book collection needs to be updated.
Drug Info sends every central library two free copies of new books in the Drug Info book collection, as well as the updated list or titles and notification about new titles to obtain and resources to remove. The Drug Info contact arranges the purchase of any new titles or editions, and removes and discards any out of date titles.
All of the books and booklets in the collection have been catalogued on Libraries Australia. You should easily be able to do copy cataloguing.
