1. Valuing library collections

SCIS sometimes receive requests from Teacher Librarians who are required to place a value on the their collections for insurance purposes. You may wish to read the useful information located at <http://www.eddept.wa.edu.au/centoff/cmis/eval/library/avprice/index.htm> to assist you in the preparation of your Disaster Management Policy.

2. Internet content complaints

There are laws that allow members of the public to complain about certain offensive Internet content to the Australian Broadcasting Authority (ABA). Australia's online hotline for Internet content complaints is <http://www.aba.gov.au/whaVonline/complaints.htm>. You can complain to the ABA about material on the World Wide Web, postings to newsgroups and other stored information. You cannot complain to the ABA about ordinary email, chat services and voice over the Internet.

3. New, amended and replaced subject headings

Please note that, as a result of some queries, the list of new headings and their references published on page 11 of Connections 33 is being reconsidered. Any changes to this list will be reported in Connections 35, and will be published on the website. We apologise for any inconvenience caused
