If you are interested in making a donation to NCACL, the first step is to contact the National Centre. The Cultural Gifts Program requires all donations to fall within the institution’s Collection development policy. The National Centre must also consider whether the potential donation offers research potential in the field of Australian children’s literature, whether the donation complements other items held within our collection, whether we are the most suitable institution, and whether we can offer the storage needed.
A sub-committee of the National Centre’s Management Subcommittee considers potential donations. Should the donation be considered appropriate for the National Centre, we will accept the collection and assist in identifying two appropriate valuers, which are required under the Program, to value the donation.
