This issue of the LEP Newsletter covers a lot of ground! The ever popular Australian Social Trends publication is featured. A print copy was sent to all LEP libraries.

In other articles, NetNews provides some fascinating figures on the ever increasing size and usage of the ABS web site, while the article about the eLEP web service notes that 75% of LEP libraries now access ABS information via the web.

If your library doesn't yet access eLEP or AusStats it is a good time to subscribe. Like many information providers the ABS is producing more and more material that is only available electronically. More than 1,000 full text titles are now available in eLEP. AusStats has even more content - including 2,000 time series tables.

Mackay City Library, a recent new eLEP subscriber, like eLEP so much they decided to launch it to their community. See the article in this issue.

Lastly, this issue's Shortcuts is all about the CPI. We've all heard of it, but what is it and what is it used for?
