Are you an Australian author or creator? Did you know that publishers or creators – authors, illustrators, editors, translators, and compilers – can all get money back for an estimated loss of income due to books being available in libraries – public and educational lending libraries? The deadline for submitting new title claims closes on the 31st of March each year. If you miss the cut-off, you can add your title to next year’s program. In 2019-2020 Australian Lending Right Schemes paid 17200 lending rights payments totalling around $22 million.
