State Library of South Australia

Your Writers’ Week companion: Australian Book Review Online

Date: 4 March 2014

The Library has been subscribing to Australia's premier literary journal the Australian book review since its first publication in November 1961. For those who aren't familiar with this monthly journal, it publishes book reviews, essays, commentaries and creative writing from around Australia. The early 1960s were a lively time for the arts and literature, because the first appearance of the Australian book review was hot on the heels of the first Adelaide Festival of Arts in 1960.

Originally published in South Australia, the Australian book review has brought itself into the 21st century with an additional online format Australian book review online, to which the Library now also subscribes as one of its eResources. This means that South Australians can access Australian book review online from home or out and about, making it so much more accessible. In a quiet moment at Writers Week you will be able to peruse issues of Australian Book Review online on your ipad.

Australian book review online has extra functionality with links to other articles by reviewers and to related articles, as well as some interesting columns like 'Arts Update'. Have a look at the Letters section of Arts Update for an open letter to the Director of the State Library of New South Wales on the Mitchell Library refurbishment controversy. Australian book review online goes back to November 2010.
