SRC Noticeboard

Welcome to the SRC Notice Board—a place for libraries and participating organisations to ask questions, read SRC news, share ideas and expertise, and provide feedback to assist in continued development of the SRC program. The purpose of the SRC Notice Board is to inform, to support, and to develop. To post something to the SRC Noticeboard, send your post to the SRC Mailbox. In the body of the email, please include your name, your library, your state and a title for your post. Consent for State Library QLD to use your images will be required for any pictures you wish to include with your posting. Contact Us if you have any questions pertaining to the purpose of the SRC Notice Board or the content posted to it. It is anticipated that the SRC Notice Board will become a valued and frequently visited resource to those delivering SRC programs during the summer period.
