Scholastic Australian Standing OrdersStanding order subscriptionAustraliaLinda from the Australian International School says: "Australian Standing Orders is an excellent source of new Australian publishing, and it’s well worth considering a subscription if you don’t have one. They select what they consider to be the best new Australian releases (and other). I found we already had the CBCA shortlists in our libraries when the list was announced, largely due to ASO." "ASO is a unique alternative to book buying, designed especially for Primary and Secondary school libraries. We are a subscription service offering the best new releases from all Australian publishers, together with comprehensive teacher notes which provide ideas for classroom activities and discussion."
Different subscription plans on offer. notes available on the website.
