Summary The Australian Poetry Library has been developed to promote a greater appreciation and understanding of Australian poetry by providing access to a wide range of poetic texts, many of which are now out of print, as well as to critical and contextual material relating to them, including interviews, photographs and audio/visual recordings. At present the site contains over 42,000 poems, which can be searched via keywords, and which are also indexed according to some selected poetic forms and main themes. It will be progressively developed over the coming years to include work by more poets, as well as more critical and contextual material.
All the poems may be accessed and read freely on the World Wide Web. Any one wishing to download and print poems may do so for a small fee, part of which is returned to the poets via CAL, the Copyright Agency Limited.
