SCIS Cataloguing Services
SCIS cataloguers add around 3,500 catalogue records to the database each month, keeping it relevant and current. The resources catalogued come from a range of sources including publishers and booksellers, but the majority are contributed by Australian and New Zealand school libraries.
SCIS has agencies supported by the New South Wales Department of Education and Communities and cataloguers in Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, Perth, Auckland, Dunedin and Nelson. Resources not found on the database can be sent to the SCIS agency in your state or area as listed below.
Some material may be deemed unsuitable for the SCIS database according to our cataloguing guidelines. Your local cataloguing agency can provide more detail.
