Most Australian books ever written are now out-of-print and inaccessible to readers. That includes local histories and memoirs, beloved children’s titles, and even winners of our most glittering literary prizes, such as the Miles Franklin Literary Award.

Untapped is an ongoing collaboration between authors, libraries and researchers, working together to identify Australia’s lost literary treasures and bring them back to life. Find out more about what’s involved with rediscovering these titles and making them available to readers everywhere.

The titles can be borrowed as e-books through the Overdrive Libby app, Borrowbox app, or you can purchase your own copy through the Untapped catalogue.
