How do I find recently published Australian material?

A good place to find recently published Australian material is through the Recent Australian Publications (RAP) service from the National Library.

RAP produces monthly, easy-to-use online files on new Australian publications. It includes printed materials such as books, journals, maps, music, and newspapers; as well as multimedia material and electronic resources.

RAP includes everything published in Australia, as well as works published overseas by Australian authors or about Australia. Each publication has been published during the current or previous two years.

You can browse each months file by subject or title and download the records free of charge.
