SURFING (THE WEB) FOR HERITAGE AND ARTS
The 2005 edition of Year Book Australia (cat. no. 1301.0) was released on 21 January, 2005. Each year, NCCRS staff compile the Culture and Recreation chapter of the year book. One of the main NCCRS contributors this year was Frank Scherl, who writes:
"Earlier this year, I had the privilege of working on a chapter of the 2005 ABS Year Book. One of the more rewarding aspects of this particular project, was the opportunity to explore a range of Internet Web-sites that would usually fall well outside the scope of my day-to-day work. As a journalist who earns his daily bread writing about statistics, the five sites listed below added some much-appreciated spice to my otherwise steady diet of pure facts and figures. Enjoy."
