Closing date for submitting title claims

Title claims for the 2024-25 programs need to be lodged by 31 March 2024 for eligible books or editions you have not claimed.  You may submit title claims for books published between 1 January 2018 and 31 December 2023.

New Claimants

If you have never registered for Lending Rights, please click on the ‘New Claimant – Register’ button on the top right-hand corner of this page to start your registration process to submit your claim.

You only need to register once for lending rights. Your claimant number identifies you in our database and links all books for which you have claimed.

Existing Claimants

Registered claimants can access their accounts by clicking on the ‘Existing Claimant - Sign In’ button on the top right-hand corner of this page, using your claimant number and password.

If you are having difficulties logging into your account or you can’t remember your claimant number, please call 1800 672 842 for assistance.

Title Claims

If a title claim for a book was previously submitted, do not submit another claim for the same title, unless a new edition with a new ISBN is published.
