SCIS Standards Amendment
At a recent meeting held between members of the SCIS cataloguing agencies it was decided that a special book number ABL would be assigned to materials about Australian Aborigines whose book number would normally be ABO.
The change is a response to concerns raised by teachers and members of the Aboriginal community that the ABO abbreviation is demeaning and degrading.
Existing SCIS records affected by this decision will be altered.
