Welcome to Library Lowdown, your go-to resource for new Nelson Cengage product information. 

We know librarians are the heart of the school. They’re the ones who organise, disseminate and coordinate the information that keeps the teachers and staff functioning. That’s why we’ve created an eNewsletter and webpage specifically dedicated to you, the librarians! In our quarterly newsletter and regularly updated webpage, you’ll find new product information, an archive of all previous Library Lowdown eNewsletters, as well as the latest Nelson Cengage product catalogues.  We hope compiling this information makes your job easier, and if there’s anything else we can do for you, don’t hesitate to contact one of our local education consultants via the form at the bottom of this page. 

Thank you and enjoy!
