This section contains information for librarians and library users. Amendments to the Films, Videos, and Publications Classification Act 1993 made in 2005 have changed the labelling requirements for non-film publications. Additionally, as libraries expand their collections to include new types of publications librarians are faced with new questions about complying with the Act.
