The NCACL has a comprehensive, catalogued collection of books and other resources by Australian authors, illustrators and publishers. The collection* includes over 52,000 books, with some 5,200 of these in overseas translations in 68 languages.  In addition, there are over 546 research files and significant collections of authors’, illustrators’ and publishers’ papers, manuscripts and artwork.

There is a dedicated small team of NCACL volunteers who ensure titles are catalogued and publicly available.
