SOURCE: The Social Policy Library Current Awareness Portal will cease to operate as of the 31 August 2020
The Social Policy Library’s current awareness portal, originally known as BroCAP, was designed in 2011 by Michele O’Brien one of the Brotherhood’s librarians. It was developed as source of current information posted daily with links to the full document or the relevant website.
In 2014 BroCAP was redeveloped and SOURCE was born. Again the library continued to post information primarily intended as a way of keeping Brotherhood of St Laurence staff informed on a day to day basis in areas of interest. The fact that SOURCE has been publicly available meant that the information posted was accessible, not only to staff across the Brotherhood, but to the social services sector and the general public in Australia and worldwide.
As circumstances changed in 2018-2019 and, then again in 2020, due to the impact of COVID-19, library resources have been reduced considerably and, as a result, we are unable to continue the service at this time.
We sincerely thank you for your support over the years and be assured that our library services do continue and our library collection, much of which is in electronic format, is searchable via The Social Policy Library Catalogue.
Our kindest regards
