Of these the full texts of over 3,000 poems in the public domain are available on the Source . The poetry database is searchable by subject, poet, title, genre, and first line - Short Stories, is an index to over 2,000 short stories including fairytales, folktales, myths and legends linked to the collections in which they appear. All are annotated, the full text of some is included and the short story index is searchable by author, title, subject, genre and age - Awards, is a database of the winners and short-listed books for 44 Australian, New Zealand and international children's literature awards.
