This non-exhaustive, partially annotated booklist of multicultural materials was compiled from library catalogs, reviews published for school libraries, publishers' and booksellers' catalogs, and a search of bookshops in Sydney, Adelaide, and Melbourne. It indicates what is currently available in Australia, and provides ideas for an initial school library collection. Organization is by the following categories which list all English materials about foreign cultures in alphabetical order by author: fiction; folktales, myths, and legends; customs, cookery, costumes, festivals, folkdances, and folksongs; and descriptive history and travel. An annotated listing of some examples of ethnic language materials, in alphabetical order by author, is also contained. A list of names and addresses of bookshops specializing in ethnic language materials; people who may be useful contacts; schools with ongoing multicultural programs; libraries that have ethnic collections; and reference materials that are useful for background information, is also included.
