Scope and Contents
The Australian Student Christian Movement, until 1913 known as the Australian Student Christian Union, is the Australian branch of the World Student Christian Federation (W.S.C.F.) It is active mainly in Universities but also in schools and teacher training colleges.
The records held are the national level records of the A.S.C.M. Two-thirds of the collection consists of correspondence, the greater part being to and from the presiding General Secretary (until 1907 the presiding Travelling Secretary.)
The other third consists of minutes and reports relating to National Executive, General Committee, Business Convention, State Councils, Schools and Conferences. Included also are the records of the Student Volunteer Movement (S.V.M.) 1896-1919, and the records of the Foreign Service Fellowship, which appears to succeed to S.V.M., beginning in 1927.
The remaining material consists of records of special committees and commissions, finance, visits from prominent overseas speakers, W.S.C.F. reports, memoranda and memorabilia.

'We are sorry to have to say that the reduction in scope of ASCM Headquarters means that we cannot any longer handle Religious Book Club (now SCM Book Club) subscriptions. Many of you have been subscribers through your membership of ASCM or your interest in SCM Bookhouse and you probably realised that any profits from handling benefited the funds of the Movement. We hope that you will continue to belong to this SCM Press scheme because we support the idea of the new series. It will be very easy for you to continue, even without us.
The Presbyterian Bookroom, Melbourne, whose manager formerly managed our Bookhouse and who dealt generously with us over dispensing of the stock, has offered a donation of $1.00 to Movement funds for every one of our members who transfers (If you all do so, ASCM will receive about $180). You will realise from SCM Press pamphlets that the new series will be slightly more expensive: Australian price, including postage, will be $4.85.
With our thanks and best wishes
Australian Student Christian Movement'
