Some of these books can be purchased locally in Australia though you may have to ask your bookshop to order them in. Also the Fur & Feather bookshop has many excellent titles (anything from the list below published either by Coney, Fur & Feather or Printing for pleasure can be found there). And there is also good old Amazon (either the original one or the UK one). The club used to have a library but it was disbanded several years ago through lack of use.
