The Educational Lending Right School Library Survey (ELR) is administered by Education Services Australia (ESA) on behalf of Office for the Arts in the Australian Government Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications. ESA invites a sample selection of schools to participate each year, collecting data from at least 300 schools in order to estimate the number of specific book titles held in Australian school libraries. This information is used to recompense registered book creators under the Educational Lending Right scheme.
