Information about the Drug Info book collection in your library.
The Drug Info book collection is a small collection of plain English books about drugs and alcohol. The collection is small due to the limited availability of Australian books about drugs and alcohol. 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. The Drug Info contact arranges the purchase of any new titles or editions and removes and discards any out of date titles.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.
