This conference paper discusses how the Clearinghouse has been developed by partners including sports libraries, State departments of sport and recreation, State institutes and academies of sport, National sporting organisations and peak sporting bodies. The purpose is to collect and disseminate audience-appropriate information relevant to the Australian sport sector. Clients include sport practitioners (i.e., coaches, physical educators, scientists, administrators, volunteers, officials and athletes), Australian governments and the wider community. It provides current awareness alerts and services, video and document archives, access to databases, information searches and document delivery, the Catalogue of Australian Sport Sector Library Collections and sector-specific information portfolios.
